To Otho H. Williams

Treasury Department
March 31st 1791


The device intimated to me in your letter of the 26th. of January, I consider as a mere evasive expedient, which ought not to protect the owner of the vessel from a prosecution for perjury. It is my desire therefore that if any such case should occur you may direct proceedings on that ground against the offender.

I am, Sir,   Your obedt. Servant

Alexander Hamilton

Otho H Williams Esqr.
