To Rufus King

[November 11, 1793]

My Dear Sir

Inclosed in a letter which I have just received from poor Fenno.1 It speaks for itself.

If you can without delay raise 1000 Dollars in New York, I will endeavor to raise another Thousand at Philadelphia. If this cannot be done we must lose his services & he will be the victim of his honest public spirit.

Yrs. truly

A Hamilton
