George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Alexander Hamilton, 17 October 1791

To Alexander Hamilton

George-Town [Md.], Octo. 17th 1791.

My dear Sir,

I am thus far on my way to Philadelphia, and if the disagreeableness of the weather (for it is now raining) does not prevent it, shall proceed to Bladensburgh at least to night; but be my dispatch what it probably may, the mail which leaves this tomorrow, will arrive in Phialdelphia before me.

This being the case, and time pressing, I forward the enclosed suggestions of Mr Jefferson and Mr Madison, who are both at this place and from whom I requested information of the several matters that had occurred to them, proper for communication.1 Iam always sincerely Yours

G. W——n
