Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to James McHenry, 6 March 1800

To James McHenry, 6 March 1800

N York March 6. 1800.


I enclose some letters in recommendation of Mr. Van Renselaer as a Lieutenant in the corps of Artillerists & Engineers—You will perceive that the letters come from persons of respectability—By what I have learnt in other modes the young Gentleman is perfectly probably worthy of the post which he sollicits.

S of War—
