Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Elizabeth Hamilton, 22 June 1798

To Elizabeth Hamilton

[New York] June 22d. 1798

I believe my beloved that I omitted to write by the last Post thinking it would not find you at Albany; but as it seems possible from what Mr. Schuyler tells me that your stay may be prolonged1 I write this to say to my darling that I begin to [be] very anxious for her return & hope it will be accelerated. I was very glad to receive a favourable account of her health & spirits.

1Elizabeth Hamilton had left Albany before this letter reached her, for the envelope indicates that the letter was returned to New York City.
