Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to James McHenry, 1 May 1800

To James McHenry, 1 May 1800

NY. May 1st. 1800


Enclosed is an extract of a letter from General Wilkinson, dated the twenty fifth of February, which I send you for your information.

Enclosed also is a letter from Captain Miller sent me by Col. Hamtramck, and the observations of the Colonel upon it—I know not from what authority the instructions, relative to a stoppage offer, proceeded. If you have any information on the point I would thank you to communicate it—

Enclosed are returns of Medicine wanted by for the ⟨—⟩ Brigade transmitted to me by under the command of Lt Col. Smith—

As the Brigade is sickly I am particularly anxious that such supplies as may appear necessary should be furnished without delay—There being no Officer particularly designated to whom to send returns make applications of this nature I am obliged to trouble you with them on the occasion—

S of War
