5413. MONEY (Metallic), Payments in.—

As the laws authorize the payment of a
given number of dollars to you, and as your
duties place you in London, I suppose we are
to pay you the dollars there, or other money
of equal value, estimated by the par of the
metals. Such has, accordingly, been the practice
ever since the close of the war.—
To Thomas Pinckney. Washington ed. iii, 526.
(Pa., 1793)
