Alexander Hamilton's Treasury Department renders an extraordinarily detailed accounting of receipts and expenditures during the first two years of government under the Constitution, commencing in March 1789 and continuing through 1791. The document treats each U.S. government activity during this formative period, with tables and reports of duties on imports and tonnage, the military establishment and its western frontier, funds to Henry Knox for negotiating treaties with the Indians, surveys, the government of the Northwest Territory, Arthur St. Clair, revenue cutters and light-houses, expenses of removing the seat of Government from New York to Philadelphia, salaries, and a cornucopia of other matters.
