Treasury Department Circular
to the Collectors of the Customs
Treasury Department June 17th. 1794.
I send you herewith an Act of the last session of Congress, entitled, “An Act in addition to the Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States.”1
This Act is relative to objects which have been already committed to your attention by my letter of the 4th, of August 1793;2 serving to invigorate the means of repressing practices which are as contrary to good order as dangerous to the National Peace.
With great consideration I am Sir, Your obedient Servant
