Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from Jeremiah Olney, 10 November 1791

From Jeremiah Olney

Providence, November 10, 1791. “On the arrival of the Sloop Clementina from Newport, the Third instant, the Master informed me that there were Six Chests of Tea onboard; but there proved to be only Five: my Letter1 was written before the Inspector, who had orders to Store it, made his Return; which will account for the mistake. The Apples, being of a perishable nature, were delivered to the Consignee, who, in case of condemnation, is to account for them.…”
