Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Pierre Charles L’Enfant, 29 March 1793

To Pierre Charles L’Enfant1

[Philadelphia] March 29. 1793

Private & Confidential

Dear Sir

The ideas you have communicated give me pain. I wish you had not adopted the idea of adjourning the hands, unless you had been legally directed so to do. I cannot imagine that the Directors will adopt the change. If you are still in a situation to go on with propriety I wish you by all means to do it. You may be assured I shall not be unmindful of the business.

Yrs. truly

A Hamilton
