Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from James McHenry, 27 March 1800

From James McHenry1

Philad. 27 March 1800

Dear Sir

Here is what the committee have reported. They would not go further, and I wish Congress may go as far. You forgot, when you thought to combine interests, that the little passions are great intermeddlers in the most important affairs.

Yours truely


Gen Hamilton
