From Alexander Hamilton to Alexander Thompson, 18 September 1799

To Alexander Thompson, 18 September 1799

New York Sepr. 18. 1799


I have received your lette⟨r⟩ of the seventeenth of July, and shall be happy to give every facility in my power to the passage of Mrs. Thompson & her family to Niagara—I do not know that any opportunity of the kind you mention will speedily occur—but should it be the case I shall not fail to comply with your request—With respect to your meeting Mrs. Thompson at Albany or Schenectady I can not give you the permission you ask as the propriety of the thing must depend on the particular situation of the post—On that subject therefore I must refer you to the commanding offic⟨er.⟩ I thank you for the information contained in your letter—

With great conn.

Capt Thompson—
