From Alexander Hamilton to John Jay, 9 April 1793

To John Jay

Philad April 9. 1793

My Dear Sir

I have already written you by this Post. A further Question occurs. Would not a proclamation prohibitting our citizens from taking Comns. &c on either side be proper?

Would it be well that it should include a declaration of Neutrality?

If you think the measure prudent could you draft such a thing as you would deem proper? I wish much you could.

Truly as Ever

A Hamilton

Chief Justice Jay
