Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Richard Harison, [2 June 1792]

To Richard Harison1

[Philadelphia, June 2, 1792]

My Dear Sir

The Patents to the Ohio Company, in conformity to the Act,2 were issued before the President went to Mount Vernon. I hope no inconvenience will have ensued. Mr. King having written to me on the same subject, I have sent him a rough sketch of the exterior line of the whole tract granted by the several Patents.

Yrs. sincerely

A Hamilton
