To John H. Buell, 18 April 1800
NY. April 18. 1800
Your letters of the
fifth sixth and sixth seventh, instants have been replied to except as to the arming of the recruits—I do not think it expedient that arms should be sent to Vermont—The troops will take their route towards Pittsburg passing thro’ this place where they can be supplied—
(Df, in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress).
