Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to James McHenry, 25 September 1799

To James McHenry, 25 September 1799

New York Sepr. 25th 1799


Upon looking over the letters which I have received of from Col. Bentley I find in one of them Mr. Call recommended, in one of them, as worthy of a Lieutenancy. No mention is made of Mr. Hall—I presume It appears therefore that but one person has been nominated, and that the person name of that person is Call—

With great respect
