Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Elizabeth Hamilton, 20 April 1799

To Elizabeth Hamilton

Philadelphia April 20

I yesterday informed my beloved1 of my arrival here. A very good night’s rest has put me in as pleasant a state as I can be when absent from my dear and excellent Eliza. But the pressure of my engagements obliges me to confine myself to the information that I am in good health; which I am glad to know is of more importance than any thing else I could say. Kiss all my Children for me.

Adieu My Amiable


Mrs. H

ALS, Mrs. John Church Hamilton, Elmsford, New York.
