Nover. 5th 1805
Annexed is a sketch of the Receipts & Expenditures for the year ending 30th Septer. last. It cannot be perfectly correct; & several alterations will Certainly be made on the official examination of the accounts. But the variations will not be such as to affect any general result. The most imperfect part is the estimate of that part of the customs which arise from the Mediterranean fund, and which we do not consider as part of the permanent revenue. With respectful attachment Your obedt. Servt.
