Treasury Department Circular to the
Collectors of the Customs in Massachusetts
June 26th. 1792
It appears from a Return of the Office of discount & deposit of the United States Bank at Boston, that many of the Collectors in your State make their remittances to that institution; discontinuing the former mode of paying into the Bank of Massachusetts. This transfer of payment from one Bank to the other, having never been directed by me, is irregular and requires explanation.
I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant
LC, to Samuel Gerry, Essex Institute, Salem, Massachusetts.
