To Samuel Gerry

Treasury Department
August 18th 1792


Your Letter of the 28 Ultimo1 was duly received. If it should appear to you that the former ad-measurements of Vessels have been materially inaccurate, read-measurements may be made. This, however, will not affect any thing past.

A Thermometer was sent to you in March 1791. Inquiry will be made by what opportunity it was transmitted. In the mean time I should be glad to be informed whether none has come to hand.

I am, Sir,   Your obedt. Servt.

Alex. Hamilton
