HON. ROBERT MORRIS TO GOV. MARTIN.
[From Executive Letter Book.]


Office of Finance, 26 May, 1784.

Circular.

Sir:

I have just now received from Joseph Pennell, Esquire, Commissioner for adjusting the accounts of the Marine Department a Letter of the 25th from which an extract is enclosed.1 The matter there mentioned will doubtless have a like operation on the conduct of other Commissioners of accounts and it therefore becomes my duty to submit the matter to the several States that those who have complied with the recommendation of Congress may have reason to approve of such compliance, and that those who have omitted may be thus early apprised of those necessary consequences which they might otherwise complain of as partial preferences.

With perfect respect, &c.
ROBERT MORRIS.
