[ Elizabethtown, New Jersey, July 27, 1798. On August 6, 1798, Hamilton wrote to Dayton : “I received at Philadelphia your letter of the 27th of July.” Letter not found. ]
I received at Philadelphia your letter of the 27th of July the answer to which has been delayed by excessive occupation. You know, I trust, sufficiently my sentiments of you, not to need being told how much pleasure your appointment gave me, and how highly I value the confidence you express in me. It will probably be unexpected to you to be told that I am not yet in the exercise of the...
The enclosed letter to Major Ford directs him to take the command of some detachments of Artillerists which have been ordered to march as auxiliaries to the Volunteers under Mc:Pherson destined against the Northampton Insurgents. Be so good as to have it forwarded by an expeditious and certain conveyance by express if none other equally prompt and certain offers. Do me the favor also to inform...
Your favor dated the 18th. was received this morning. The letter accompanying it for Majr. Ford was immediately sent to the Post office at Newark, from whence a Mail goes this afternoon to Morris. In answer to your enquiry respecting the Major’s character, I can assure you that he has ever been considered a good officer, and that I know him to be perfectly sound, correct & firm in his...

An Accurate view of the internal situation of the UStates presents many discouraging reflections to the enlightened friends of our Government and country. Notwithstanding the unexampled success of our public measures at home and abroad—notwithstanding the instructive comments afforded by the disastrous & disgusting scenes of the french Revolution, public opinion has not been...
I write to you in confidence, & altho’ in the language, yet not in the temper of complaint. A practice has prevailed with some of the Regts. in your Division of drawing mony & rations on acct. without regular rolls & returns. This, I am sure, needs only to be known by you in order to be reprobated & corrected, for it’s tendency is most pernicious not only in encouraging indolence, inattention...
I thank you for your letter of the , and the friendly disposition it manifests. As to Frances’s Memorial it is my wish that its course to the house may meet with no obstruction. It is now returned. I never knew (though I have suspected) the channel through which certain papers went to the hands of Callender . I should be glad to ascertain it— quantum valiat . In regard to France my Opinion is...
[ Philadelphia, March 25, 1798. On March 30, 1798, Hamilton wrote to Dayton : “Your letter of the 25th gave me much pleasure.” Letter not found. ] Printed in this volume.
Your letter of the 25th gave me much pleasure. The communication respecting certain papers is sufficient till we meet. Our coincidence in opinion on public affairs was anticipated. Yet I am glad to hear it from yourself. I preferred the idea of a “ suspension of the Treaties” because it is a cooler and less unpopular mode of doing the same thing as to consider them as at an end. No declaration...
