From Alexander Hamilton to James Hardie, 7 December 1795

To James Hardie

New York, December 7, 1795. “I have received your Letter of the 2d. instant. As I do not practice in the Mayor’s Court I cannot act for you as Attorney in the Cause you mention. But if you think my assistance at the Trial necessary—I shall be ready to give—if on knowing the Circumstances there appears a ground of Defence.”
