Timothy Pickering wrote from the General Post Office to John Kean, Cashier of the Bank of the United States, Philadelphia, PA. Timothy was the United States Postmaster General at the time. He acknowledged that John was still serving as commissioner of accounts and, therefore, allowed to frank letters (use a signature instead of postage). John must pay for letters sent to him.
