Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Otho H. Williams, 11 November 1791

To Otho H. Williams

Treasury Department
November 11 1791


I have, on consideration, concluded to authorise you to allow the Officers and crew of the revenue cutter twelve cents per ration, instead of nine cents, mentioned in my circular letter of the 21st September. But the allowance claimed for expences of board is inadmissible; their pay and rations must be considered as a full compensation.

I am, Sir,   Your Obed Servant.

Alexander Hamilton

Otho H Williams Esqr.
