Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Nathan Rice, 11 July 1799

To Nathan Rice

N. York July 11th. 1799


Agreably to your own ideas communicated in your letter of the 23. Ulto. you will consider Somerset as established for your regimental Rendezvous. I urge constantly the completion of the appointment of Officers. I am not sure whether a competent number of proper candidates are as yet before the Secy. of War. If not it is to be wished other fit characters may be presented.

With great considr. &c

Col Rice
