Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from Henry Knox, 24 November 1794

From Henry Knox

[Philadelphia] Monday 24 Nov 1794. 1/2 past three oClock

My dear Hamilton

Among other reasons for wishing your return is Mrs Hamiltons earnest desire.

It seems that she has had, or has been in danger of a miscarriage, which has much alarmed her. But Doctor Khun1 by whom she is attened with Doctor Stephens,2 Assures that she is in no danger. However as she is extremely desirous of your presence in order to tranquilize her this note is transmited by the Presidents request.

I am my dear Sir   Your affectionate friend
