Treasury Department Circular
to the Collectors of the Customs
Treasury Department, June 25, 1793.
It appears that the summary of the amount of Duties on Imposts and Tonnage which accrued within your district during the first Quarter of the present Year has not yet come to hand. The importance of Punctuality in this particular, was strongly indicated by my Letter of the 12th of October 1792.1 The delay embarrasses me, and is a cause of regret. I hope for your exertions to avoid a similar delay in future.
With great Consideration, I am, Sir, your Obedient Servant,
