Dear Sir

You will oblige me by sending me as soon as may be (first obtaining the consent of Mr Wolcott)2 a statement of the respective amounts of the several Items, of the Domestic Debt as they originally stood distributed among the several states.3 You once made out such a paper for me.

Yours with regard

A Hamilton.
