Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Timothy Darling, 10 September 1799

To Timothy Darling, 10 September 1799

New York Sepr. 10. 1799


The Secretary of War (to whom your letters were irregularly addressed has sent me a copy of your letter of the thirty first of August which was irregularly addressed to that officer. A sufficient supply has been sent on for the present use of the Regiment to which you belong, and I have written to Col. Graves directing him to forward to you such a part of the Articles furnished as shall make up the proportion to which you are entitled.

It will be well for you to open a correspondence with Col. Graves on the subject.

With great consideration I am, Sir & &—

Major Darling—
