To John B. Church
[New York, June 10, 1786]
My Dear friend,
Being to set out in few minutes on a Circuit I have only time to inclose you a duplicate of my Letter of the 23 of May1 and of a Bill of Lading for a Sum of money by the last packett: the last I say; but I believe she has not yet set Sail. I have given direction to the Broker to make Insurance for you.
I have spoken to a friend to collect some more proper gold & Silver for you; which will be forwarded by the first Opportunity after my Return.
Copy, in writing of Pierre Van Cortlandt, Jr., Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress.
1. Letter not found.
