From Robert Morris

Alexander Hamilton Esqre

Philada 30 March 1796

Dear Sir

I delivered your letter to Wm Lewis Esqre1 together with yours to me2 and a draft of the Mortgage.3 He promised attention but as the Supreme Court is Sitting I believe he is much hurried. It will be over in a few days & then I suppose we shall get the business finished. In the mean time I drop this line that you may know that no delay occurs on my part. On the Contrary I wish to put you perfectly at ease & always am

Dr Sir Yrs Sincerely
