From James McHenry
[Philadelphia, March 8, 1798]
My dear Hamilton.
I have transferred your certificates and received your interest. I have also paid to Mr. Wolcott 40 20/100. I will pay to Mr. Lewis 7 dolls who says he does not recollect that you owed him any thing. I have retained 100, and herewith inclose the balance or 21 36/100.1
If this should find you at New-York I intreat you to spare an hour or two to the essay, and to send it to me as soon as possible. If you should not have returned to New York I have desired Mr. Inglis to transmit it.2
Apathy prevails as yet within and out of Congress.
|Interest reced at the Bank of the U.S.||144 48|
|4 quarters at the B. N. Am.||24 8|
