1. This letter may be incorrectly dated in the dealer’s catalogue, for in “Treasury Department Circular to the Collectors of the Customs,” February 21, 1792, H had instructed the collectors not to accept the notes of the Bank of New York and the Bank of North America. See also William Seton to H, June 25, 1793.
