Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Nathan Rice, 17 March 1800

To Nathan Rice

NY. March 17th 1800


The Secretary of War informs me that the resignation of Lieut W. Church of the fifteenth regiment is accepted.1 You will make this known to Col. Hunnewell that it may be communicated to Lieut. Church. You will inform me of the date of the notification to Mr. Church.

Col. Rice

1See H to James McHenry, March 11, 1800; McHenry to H, March 13, 1800 (both listed in the appendix to this volume).

H was completely confused in his statement concerning Church, for the man’s name was Samuel W. Church and his regiment was the Fourteenth, not Fifteenth.
