From William Seton
[New York, February 18, 1794]
My Dear sir
The enclosed I have just received from Mr. Church with a very polite Letter to myself. He did not then know of the purchases I had made for him,1 but I am sure they will be satisfactory—the price of Shares still ⟨con⟩tinues at 13 to 13½ Cent & Exchange about 5 Cent. ⟨I hope to⟩day or tomorrow to receive a few lines from you ⟨on the su⟩bject.
I am with the greatest esteem & respect Dear sir Your Obliged Obedt Sert
Alexr. Hamilton Esqr.
