U.S. History

From Oliver Wolcott, Secretary of the Treasury.

Philadelphia, 4 February, 1795.

SIR,

I have been informed, through the Secretary of State, that you have been pleased to appoint me to the office of Secretary of the Treasury of the United States. It is with real diffidence that I undertake to discharge the important duties incident to this appointment. Yet if constant exertions and strict fidelity can compensate for such qualifications as I may not possess, I indulge a hope that my services will receive your approbation.

But whatever may be the effect of my endeavours in respect to my own reputation, and the interests confided to my care, I beg leave to assure you, that this distinguished token of confidence will never fail to excite in my breast lively sentiments of respect and gratitude.

I have the honor to be, &c.,

OLIVER WOLCOTT JR.
