Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from Oliver Wolcott, Junior, 24 June 1794

From Oliver Wolcott, Junior

Treasury Department, June 24, 1794. “It is my duty to inform you that Daniel Benezet, Collector for Great-Egg-Harbour, has made no return to the Treasury since January 1792; and that several letters have been written to him from this Office on the subject, to which he has neglected to pay any attention. A similar neglect is imputable to John Lawson the younger, Collector for Sunbury, who has neglected to transmit any Returns since the 1st. quarter of the year 1792.”
