Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to John Fitzgerald, 30 June 1791

To John Fitzgerald

June 30. 1791

My Dear Sir

Yours of the 20th of June1 came duly to hand. The inclosed for our friend Lee2 was immediately forwarded to him. I was happy in the occasion of hearing from you.

Are you doing any thing at Alexandria about the Bank of the United States? Tis to be wished the interest in it may be as much diffused as possible. Nor will this disserve your local views. The prospect is that in a week the subscriptions will be full.

Afecty Yrs

A Hamilton

John Fitzgerald Esqr.

ALS, Mr. William N. Dearborn, Nashville, Tennessee.

1Letter not found.

2Charles Lee.
