Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to ———, [18 December 1791]

To ———1

Philadelphia, December 18, 1791]

My Dear Sir

I am this moment going to a rendezvous which I suspect may involve a most serious plot against me,2 but various reasons, and among others a desire to ascertain the truth induce me to hazard the consequence. As any disastrous event might interest my fame; I drop you this line, that from my impressions may be inferred the truth of the matter.

Yrs. sincerely

A Hamilton
