On the 27 & 28th of last month I took the liberty of writing you an official and private Letter, the former enclosing the accounts respecting the dispatching Mr. Jay, and the latter more particularly requesting the Character of a William Acres who says he formerly lived with you. I am ashamed and chagrined to trespass upon your time which I know to be so fully occupied with affairs of the...
By the post in an official Letter I forward to you the accounts respecting Mr. Jays embarkation, in which I hope I have acquitted myself to your Satisfaction. I must trespass upon your time to beg the favour you will inform me any day this week—The Character of a William Acres, who informs me he lived with you as a Steward or in some place of trust—he is recommended for the place of Porter to...
[ New York, May 27, 1794. On June 16, 1794, Seton wrote to Hamilton : “On the 27 & 28th of last month I took the liberty of writing you an official and private Letter.” Letter of May 27 not found. ]
I have been much chagrined at the delay in forwarding you the required papers, but when so many are concerned, it is difficult to go on very fast, tho I do assure you I got them finished as quick as I possibly could. The President forwards them on to you this day, and I trust they will be satisfactory, tho it mortifies me, that they should be always giving you so much vexation and trouble. I...
Late last night I received your favour of the 5th. with the enclosure for Mr. Verplanck, which I have sent him. You may rest assured the most immediate attention shall be paid to what you wish, and the Statements forwarded to you as soon as possible, tho it will take some time as we have to go thro’ so many Ledgers, however not a moment shall be lost, and the Interrogetarys can & will be...
The enclosed I have just received from Mr. Church with a very polite Letter to myself. He did not then know of the purchases I had made for him, but I am sure they will be satisfactory—the price of Shares still ⟨con⟩tinues at 13 to 13½ ⅌ Cent & Exchange about 5 ⅌ Cent. ⟨I hope to⟩day or tomorrow to receive a few lines from you ⟨on the su⟩bject. I am with the greatest esteem & respect   Dear...
Not wishing to infringe upon one moment of your time during the arduous & busy scene you have been engaged in, I have till now delayed my communications respecting my operations for Mr. Church. On the 17th of December I purchased for him 9 Shares of U S. Bank Stock @ 13 ⅌ Cent and 12 Shares at 13½ ⅌ Cent—on the 20th of that month I further purchased 5 Shares @ 13 ⅌ Cent & 5 Shares at 13¼ ⅌...
I took the liberty of writing you a few lines by my friend Mr. Maitland—who this day informs me of your exceeding kind & polite attention to him for which I beg you to accept my most gratefull thanks. This day United States Bank Shares began to decline & I presume in a day or two I shall be able to purchase for Mr. Church under your Limits of 15 ⅌ cent—but it strikes me that as this Stock has...
The Bearer Mr. David Maitland is a partner in my House of Commerce & my particular friend he solicits the honour of being known to you, and I trust you will excuse the liberty I take in introducing him. Mr. Maitland wishes to become a Citizen of America & I have heard that there is a shorter way of getting at this benefit, than an absolute residence of two years in the Country, if such exists...
It is a long while since I have had the pleasure to hear from you, and nothing has occured here worth attention. The Custom House refusing to take our Bank Notes I concluded to be the natural consequence of the establishment of the Bank of the United States —it rather militates against us in our Exchanges with the Branch, as we are obliged to pay out their Notes to our Dealers who have Duties...
