Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Samuel Eddins, 14 November 1799

To Samuel Eddins, 14 November 1799

NY. Novr. 14th. 99.


Your letter of yesterday has just been delivered to me.

I have heretofore directed you to proceed from to Brunswick in New Jersey, and I now confirm the order.

There are at Fort Mifflin a drummer and his boys who are to be sent from that place to New York. Wherever this letter may find reach you you will have leave a trusty sergeant to take charge of these persons, and inform Lt. Meminger of the name of the person and where he is to be found.

With consideration

Capn. Eddens—
