From Benjamin Lincoln
Boston July 10th 1795
My dear sir
I early received your favour respecting the debts paid by this State1 and immediately applied to the Treasurer of the State2 as the only person from whom I could receive that information you wished. He has been engaged in settling his acct & paying off the interest now due on our State debt. As soon as that shall be over he will make every exertion to gratify my wishes.
With great esteem I am My dear sir your affectionate friend
