From Alexander Hamilton to James Wilkinson, [8 August 1800]

To James Wilkinson

[New York, August 8, 1800]

Dear Sir:

I have received your letter from Washington,1 my wishes in every thing accord with yours. I shall be glad of every opportunity of brightening the charm. As soon as possible I will send you the information you desire. A change of office2 has deranged my Military papers and will occasion some delay. Major Rensselaer unwilling to quit goes to ascertain the possibility of remaining.3 I am of opinion that the thing is still in the discretion of the President. You I know are his friend.

Your truly

A. H.

To General Wilkinson.
