Elizabethtown [ New Jersey ] March 22, 1799 . “Your letter addressed to Major Ford reached the Post office in Newark a few minutes after the mail for Morris was sent off.… I was compelled to hire an express for 3 & ½ Dollars who delivered the letter to the Major this morng & brought back from him the enclosed to you.” ALS , Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress. For background to this letter,...
[ 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.
Forseeing that Mrs. Dayton’s illness & other unavoidable causes of detention at home would prevent me from visiting N. York very soon, I was anxious to see and converse with you in this place upon your passage to, or from Philadelphia, relatively to some military arrangements. One, & not the least important, object of attention is to give efficacy to the third section of the provisional army...
I intended to have crossed to N York this morning in compy. with Colo: Ogden for the purpose of suggesting to you some alterations very important to the military service both in the arrangements of the relative ranks of the Company officers, & of the recruiting districts. Indisposition has prevented me, but the Colonel persists in the intention. We have perfectly concurred in the alterations...

Acquainted with Capt. Joel Davis of your State, I take the liberty of recommending him to you for the command of a compy. in the eventual army. He is active, temperate and, I believe, in every respect well qualified for that charge and station. His zeal in support of our Government & it’s Administration knows no bounds and furnishes a sure ground of reliance upon him in any critical emergency....
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...
Pursuant to your request I have subjoined a list of articles which will be wanted for the 11th. 12th. & 13th. United States Regts. to enable them to erect huts & provide fuel for the ensuing winter. This estimate is the result not merely of my own reflections, but of a conversation with the Commanding officers of two of the Regts. upon the subject; and I am persuaded that any supply short of...
