To Tench Coxe
January 27th. 1795.
It is my opinion that the rule which has been adopted with regard to arrears of duty in the western survey of Pennsylvania may be extended to Kentucky.1
It ought to be the subject of a confidential communication to the Supervisor2—leaving him at liberty however to apply or limit the extent of the rule according to local circumstances and the past course of the business.
I am with great consideration Sir, Your Most Obedt. Servt.
Tench Coxe Esquire
Commissioner of the Revenue
