From Thomas Jefferson
Philadelphia March 10th. 1792
The last grant of money for defraying the contingent and other expences of the Department of State having been laid out, and the account thereof and vouchers presented at the Auditor’s office for settlement and settled, I have to request the favour of your directing a warrant for the sum of two hundred and fifty dollars to be issued for the payment of such expences as may arise in future.
I have the honor to be with great respect Sir Your most obedient & most humble Servant
The Secretary of the Treasury.
