Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Samuel Hodgdon, 12 May 1800

To Samuel Hodgdon1

NY. May 12. 1800


I wrote to you some time since requesting a supply of Marquieus and Tents for myself and the Adjutant General with our suites.2 It is my intention to set out for the camp at Scotch Plains on Monday next, and I could wish that the tents & Marquieues might be there or at Elizabeth Town by that time. They will be addressed, in either case, to the D Q M General.3
