To Jeremiah Olney1
Treasury Department, August 13, 1794. “As great inconveniences have arisen from your discontinuing to endorse the name of your Office on your letters of a public nature; as heretofore directed2 I have to request, that you will in future be more punctual in conforming to a regulation so necessary to the dispatch of business in my Department.”
