The previous sickness, and afterwards the death of Mr. Eveleigh the last Comptroller,51 which happened on the 15th of April 1791, occasioned an accommodation between the Secretary of the Treasury and the Bank of North America, with respect to a number of Warrants, which were not countersigned; the Bank agreeing to pay them, and retain them in its possession, till the appointment of a Comptroller, when they could be regularly countersigned, and charged to my account. This caused an agreement with the Comptroller, that the two first quarters of the year 1791 might be included in one account, in order that the different Offices in the Treasury Department should correspond in their balances.
