ALS as president, one page, 7.75 x 9.75, November 10, 1823. Handwritten letter to Secretary of the Treasury William H. Crawford, in full: "I have to request that you will furnish me, a statement, of settlements made, since October 1st 1822, to the 30th of September, 1823, with a statement of the amount remaining unsettled, at the last mentioned date, distinguishing the several heads of civil, military, & naval, from each other. The statements now requir'd, are to be made, as you will observe, on the same principle, with those that were render'd last year, & are intended, to show the progress that has since been made in that important branch of public duties."
