Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from George Washington, [29 May 1794]

From George Washington

[Philadelphia, May 29, 1794]


The communication, which you made to me sometime ago, of your intention to resign, and to which you refer in your letter of the 27th. instant (received yesterday afternoon) I always considered as depending upon events.

Of course nothing has been done by me to render your continuance in office inconvenient or ineligible. On the contrary, I am pleased that you have determined to remain at your Post until the clouds over our affairs, which have come on so fast of late, shall be dispersed.

Go: Washington
