To Alexander Hamilton from James McHenry, [8 March 1798]

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.

Yours affectionately

James McHenry

Interest reced at the Bank of the U.S. 144 48
