To William Seton
October 10. 1791
The duplicate return of your last purchases has come to hand.1
The Commissioner of loans2 might have issued the requisite Certificate in order to a Transfer to the books of the Treasury, upon the strength of your original Agency; especially as the Transfer was to be in the same names.
But as a different idea has struck him I have written to him the enclosed3 to obviate difficulty.
With very great consideration I remain Sir Your obedient servt
William Seton Esqr.
ALS, Bank of New York, New York City; copy, in the handwriting of William Seton, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress.
