U.S. Mint Annual Reports (1801)
Mint Director's Elias Boudinot's report regarding assay proceedings. This text is also found in the American State Papers, class 3 (finance), volume 1, report no. 161.
Paul Hybert summary: "A report from mint director Elias Boudinot to President Adams, who relayed it to Congress. The required assay of reserved pieces was not performed because none of the government officials attended — the depositors demand their property, and the Mint Director awaits instruction from the President on that matter as well as on the impending expiration of the authorization of the Mint."
