To William Leverett, 25 October 1799
New York October 25th—99
I have received your letter of the fifth instant with it’s enclosures.
It will be proper to direct such applications in future to the Commandant of the regiment. This is the mode in which it is desired to receive communications of this nature. I retain the letter which you
add transmitted to me but stil would still recommend to you to pursue the course just pointed out
(Df, in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress). Acknowledges Leverett’s letter of October 5, 1799. Letter not found.
