To William S. Smith

New York, November 18, 1799. “… I have not the smallest objection to the Officers being taught the use of the sword by the French gentlemen of whom you speak,1 nor to any measures of the kind which you may think proper to adopt that will not involve an actual expence to the public.”

Df, in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress.
