From Alexander Hamilton to Elizabeth Hamilton, 8 August 1794

To Elizabeth Hamilton1

Philadelphia Aug 8. 1794

I just take up my pen My Dear Eliza to assure you of all our health & of our continual & fervent prayers for you & those with you. Your last letter2 and one from Doctor Stringer3 have been received. The latter gave me hopes; though I shall tremble as often as I open a letter from Albany till My Darling boys situation has become more decided. God of his infinite mercy grant that he may be preserved to us.

Adieu My Love

Thank the Doctor for his kind letter.
