J Steele, Letter to Benjamin Chew, 1801

Treasury Department,
Comptroller’s Office,
May 9.th 1801.

I have received your letter of the 4th
instant, requesting that the Dividends on one thousand and
twenty on Dollars and seventy six Cents Deferred Stock standing
in your name at the Bank of the United States. This can
only be effected by a transfer of the Stock from the books upon which
it now stands credited, to those of the Loan Office of Pennsylvania;
as the arrangement hereto made by the Secretary of
the Treasury for permitting the payment of Dividends at that Bank
on Stock which might stand credited on the books of the Treasury,
is applicable only to foreign creditors. The reason which
induced the arrangement, as well as the discrimination between
foreign and domestic creditors, being fully stated in the Secretary’s
notification on the subject, I deem it unnecessary to repeat
them here.

I am, Sir,
Very respectfully,v Your Obedet Servant, J [?] Steele

Benjamin Chew, Esqr
