Description
Incloses a note from the Rev. Mr. Chanche; not being acquainted with Mr. Ingham, Secretary of the Treasury, she cannot ask him a favor, but urges the Count to inform him that the sisters of charity are too poor to pay duty on the vestments they have imported for their chapel; they are a public benefit, nursing the sick and poor; Miss Seton, whom Ingham knew personally, was educated by them, and her mother [Elizabeth Ann Seton] was their superior.
