Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from George Washington, [2–6 December 1790]

From George Washington

[Philadelphia, December 2–6, 1790]

Dear Sir—(Private)

Your indisposition1 has prevented me from giving you as much trouble in making my communications to Congress as otherwise, I might have done.

The article of your notes2 which respect the loan in Holland, I am somewhat at a loss to frame into a paragraph for the Speech, and therefore pray your assistance.

I had got it as pr. the enclosed, but upon a revision, it does not appear right. Be so good therefore as to new model, and let me have it (if convenient to you) this afternoon with the sums expressed where necessary.

I am sincerely   Yrs.
