Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Oliver Wolcott, Junior, [28 June 1798]

To Oliver Wolcott, Junior

[New York, June 28, 1798]

Dear Sir

Col Burr sets out today for Philadelphia. I have some reasons for wishing that the administration may manifest a cordiality to him.1 It is not impossible he will be found a useful cooperator. I am aware there are different sides but the case is worth the experiment. He will call on McHenry upon going to the City.

Yrs. truly

A Hamilton

O Wolcott Esqr

1H and Aaron Burr were both members of the Military Committee of New York City. See “Call for a Meeting,” June 4, 1798, note 2. See also the introductory note to H to James McHenry, June 1, 1798.
