office of Discount and Deposite, Charleston, 14th August, 1817.

SIR: Your favor of the 7th instant, in behalf of the Secretary of the Treasury, has been received. In reply to your 1st query, I have to inform you, that John Robertson, Esquire, Navy Agent, for South Carolina, is the person referred to in my return of the Treasury account with this office.

Your 2d query, I am at present unable to answer, owing to the omission of noting the name of the Collector who deposited the sum, at the time when the transaction occurred. I shall endeavor to acquire the information, and, if successful, transmit it to you. In the mean time, I would suggest, that it may be obtained at Washington, by a reference to my duplicate receipt, which was given at the time, for the purpose of being sent to the Treasury Department.

I am respectfully, sir,
Your most obedient servant,
PETER BACOT, Cashier.
