As I intend in a day or two to take lodgings for Mrs. Hamilton, I take the liberty to request you will do me the favour to procure and send me by the earliest opportunity a pound of good green tea & a dozen knives and forks such as you purchased for Mrs. Jacob Cuyler at Albany, for which I will thankfully send you the cost by the first conveyance.

[ 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 You of course know that the State of Pensylvania has repealed its act of incorporation.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....

From some returns which have already come to me I am led to fear that smuggling has already began in some parts of our eastern extremity. I have under consideration the business of establishing Guard boats, and will be much obliged to you for you[r] ideas on this subject—the usefulness of the thing, the kind of boats the plan upon which they ought to be established and the probable expence....
Mr Pomeroy has delivered me your Letter of the 4th Instant. It is doubtless of very great consequence to break up the Gang you mention; and expence for that purpose ought not to be spared. As you are at the source of information, may I request you to undertake the management of the business, and to furnish whatever money may be requisite for pursuing it with effect, drewing upon me for the...
November 12. 1789 The above is a copy of a letter transmitted you some days since. I am just favoured with your’s of the 6th instant; and have informed Mr. Butler of the train in which the business has been put and referred him to you. I did not think it adviseable to take arrangements with him here, as I could not be certain, but that in consequence of my letter you would commence operations....
Persuaded that there was nothing better to be done with Mr Chaloner, I approve the arrangement you have made as far as Mr Church’s interest is concerned. Yrs with great regard ALS , Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford. During the American Revolution Wadsworth and John B. Church had formed a business partnership which had been dissolved in 1785. From the time of his retirement from the...
I am sorry to learn that a certain heresy makes a progress. But there must be a portion of nonsense in human affairs—I bear in mind my promise to you. Pray send me a Memorandum without delay of the payments which you h⟨ave⟩ made me on Account of Mr Church with their dates. I am forwarding him my account, and I want this memorandum to Check my entries. Yrs. sincerely ALS , Mr. Pierce W. Gaines,...
I sent you some days since the statement of monies received by me on account of Mr Church & shall be glad to know it got safe to hand and has answered your purpose. It was as perfect as I could make it. Yrs truly ALS , Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford. John B. Church, an Englishman who had married Elizabeth Hamilton’s sister Angelica, and Wadsworth had been partners during the American...
Shortly after I came into Office I remember your having told me that Glauback (whom you represented as a worthless and ungrateful fellow) was indebted to General Greenes estate, I think for money lent him, and that it was your intention to endeavour to effect a purchase of his public claim & allowing him some part of it for his immediate ⟨necessities⟩ letting the residue be an indemnifi⟨cation...
A press of business has prevented my replying sooner to your late letter on the subject of certain concerns between Mr. Church & yourself. Your arrangement with Governor Mifflin appears to me in every sense prudent and proper. It certainly will be adviseable by the additional loan you mention to Mr. Seymour to secure the debt he now owes to Mr. Church & yourself by a mortgage if one cannot be...
[ Albany, April 27, 1795. On May 31, 1795, Wadsworth wrote to Hamilton : “Your favor of the 27 April came duly to hand.” Letter not found. ]
I find on perusing the papers that the account received by letter of a certain transaction was not accurate and though there was a very improper transacti⟨on⟩ several of the suggestions in a paper lately sent you are not correct. If not too late you will forbear to do with it as was intended. Yrs. ALS , Jeremiah Wadsworth Papers, Library of Congress. Letter not found.
Permit me to introduce to your acquaintance and recommend to your Civilities the bearer of this, Mr. Hoffman, our Atty General who goes to Connecticut on the question of the Connecticut Gore. He will wish to engage the assistance of one of your Lawyers; will you assist him with your advice? Yrs. Affectly ALS , Blumhaven Library and Gallery, Philadelphia. Wadsworth, a friend of H for many...
A few days since I wrote you my opinion concerning the good policy of supporting faithfully Pinckney as well as Adams . The following extract of a letter from Mr. Wolcott of the 6th instant serves to confirm it— “The Fœderal Ticket is lost in this State. There are still hopes that Mr. Adams will be elected but nothing more. I hope Mr. Pinckney will be supported as the next best thing which can...
I have lately received a line from you. I had been apprised of the machination to cheat us into Mr Burr but I have no apprehension of its success. My chief fear is that the attachment of our Eastern friends to Mr. Adams may prevent their voting for Pinckney likewise, & that some irregularity or accident may deprive us of Adams & let in Jefferson. Judge Tichener in passing through informed me...
