From Tench Coxe
Treasury Department, Revenue Office, July 9, 1794. “If duplicates of the letters to Mr. Pinckney relative to the copper, Bunting & Hearths1 have not gone, it will be well to send them.… It might be well to order a second shipment on the instant, if it should be ascertained, that a capture or ship wreck had interrupted the voyage of the vessel in wh. it shall have been ship’t. The money to be recovered on the policy will furnish funds.”
