From Charles Cotesworth Pinckney

Cantonment at Harpers Ferry [Virginia]
March 21st. 1800.

Dear Sir.

I received yesterday your favour of the 6th Instant.1 I have lately written pressingly to the Secretary of War on the subject of the Revd: Mr: Hill,2 and have enclosed him the oration he made commemorative of the military and civil virtues of our late Commander in Chief, as a Specimen of his talents. If you will permitt me, I will postpone communicating to him the contents of your letter, till the return of the next post. I enclose you also a copy of Mr: Hill’s oration. Has anything transpired, relative to the intention of the combined powers on our late Mission? Has Captn. Izard accepted his appointment under Mr: Smith?3

With my best respects to Mrs: Hamilton, I always am Yours very sincerely

Charles Cotesworth Pinckney

Honble: Major-General Hamilton.
