From Alexander Hamilton to Pierre Charles L’Enfant, 24 May 1791

To Pierre Charles L’Enfant

[Philadelphia] May 24th. 1791

My Dear Sir

I received in due time your letter of the 8th. of April; an early acknowlegement of which has been prevented by the hurry of business.

I thank you much for the full communication you have made me concerning the intended seat of Government, and will be obliged by a continuance of your observations and such further information as the progress of your operations may render interesting.

You will not forget I hope the devices for the Coins. As soon as your imagination shall have fixed upon any thing I shall be glad to know it.

With very great regard   I remain always   Yr. friend   & obed ser

A Hamilton

Major L’Enfant
