CONTENT DESCRIPTION
AbstractPhiladelphia. Received his letter and gave orders for the several Acts of Parliament referred to, to be observed and executed by the officers. Is greatly concerned that the state of their accounts are delayed so long. Cause of this delay. The rule for charging 2d. or 16 gr. of silver on every letter coming from a ship is observed here; think the office would lose if they charged but a penny a letter. Amendments which they propose for the security of correspondence as well as for the advantage of the revenue. Advise that charge for postage be made according to the number of miles letters are carried.
