To William Allibone

[New York, May 4, 1790. On the back of the letter that Allibone wrote to Hamilton on April 29, 1790, is written “Answd 4th May.” Letter not found.]1

1In the margin of Allibone’s letter of April 29, H wrote the following comments which presumably are his answers to Allibone:

“The state having made a cession the limitation is of course inapplicable.

“Warrant for in his favour or the Treasurer who is directed to take measures for payt.

“Let a contract be drawn & transmitted it will be ratified of course.”
