Dr. Leonard will have the honour to inclose this Letter, which is merely to inform you that he came over in the Same ship with me, and that from all I have Seen or heard of him, he is a very honest and inoffensive Man. By his own Account he has had great Experience in various Manufactures, and has been totally ruined, for a Suspicion that he meditated Sending to America Maps and Plans of...
[ New York, April 1, 1785. On April 7, 1785, Hamilton wrote to Jeremiah Wadsworth : “In mine to you of the first instant.” Letter not found. ]
In mine to you of the first instant I informed you that the house of Samuel and Moses Myers of Amsterdam had stopped payment in consequence of which an assignment of property had there taken place for the benefit of the English and Dutch Creditors. How far this assignment will operate cannot now be determined; as we are not sufficiently acquainted with the circumstances. It happened the Mr....
Before I left Town for Albany some time since, I requested Mr. Duer to mention to you, that I believed it would depend upon yourself to be President of the bank here. Since my coming to Town I find you are elected director; and I have no doubt you may be President if you please. I will be much obliged to you to let me know in confidence whether the appointment if made will be accepted. You may...

I have intended for some time to write to you on the subject of the bank of North America; but my absence from town and multiplied engagements have delayed my doing it. You of course know that the State of Pensylvania has repealed its act of incorporation. What do you intend to do or what would you advise to be done for Mr Church? To sell unless at a great disadvantage is not practicable. To...
The step lately taken by the Legislature of Pensylvania in repealing the act by which the government of that state had incorporated the Bank of North America has given rise to questions of a delicate and important nature. We observe with regret that the very existence of the Institution as a corporate body has by this proceeding been drawn into controversy: a circumstance which we consider in...
The inclosed is said to be the Copy of a letter circulating in your state. The history of its appearance among us is that it was sent by one Whitmore of Stratford, formerly in the Pay Master Generals Office to a James Reynold of this City. I am at a loss clearly to understand its object—and have some suspicion that it has been fabricated to excite jealousy against the Convention with a view to...
I have reflected on the subject of our conversation respecting the property belonging to Mr. Church and yourself now in the City of Philadelphia and agree in opinion with you that it will be altogether adviseable to remove it from that place to this City or Connecticut or both, so as to have it more immediately under your eye. I would therefore by all means advise the step. I remain   Yr....
[ New York, January 25, 1789. ] On February [5–28], 1789, Wadsworth wrote to Hamilton : “Your favor of the 25 Jany came in good time.” Letter not found. ]
I have received and thank you for the communications in your letter of the 1st instt. It has given me much satisfaction, to find that the letter I had written to my much lamented friend Genl Greene (respecting his affair with Captn Gun) had reached his hands. Had the case been otherwise, and he had harboured a suspicion of my inattention or neglect, the knowledge of it, would have given me...
Letter not found: to Jeremiah Wadsworth, 20 Feb. 1787. In the Collector, September-October 1956, GW is quoted as writing: “The Post of this day, brought similar information of yours.” Goodspeed’s catalog (1918), no. 125, item 2761, indicates that GW referred to Henry Knox and is quoted as having written: “the gentleman at whose house I am.” The “gentleman” is identified as “Mr. Fendal.” GW and...
Your favor of the 22d Ulto and a Barrel of Barley have arrived safe, & I pray you to accept my thanks for the latter. I lost no time in committing it to the Ground; & shall, (as it was good) look for a prolific return. My People, however, tell me it is a grain that is called Bare, and considered more as a Winter than Summer grain, tho’ it is, sometimes sown in the Spring they say. Mrs...
M rs Jay having been informed by a Gentleman who lately passed thro one of your Towns, (I think Wallingford) that good Silks were manufactured there, desires me to request the Favor of You, if [ illegible ] ^there be any for sale,^ to procure the ^a^ Pattern of a Gown and Petticoat, of some grave quaker Color, and send it to her. I am persuaded that the same motive which induces her to wish to...
