Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Alexander Hamilton, 19 April 1792

From Alexander Hamilton

April 19

Mr. Hamilton requests Mr. Jefferson to inform him whether he has received from Mr. Hamilton’s Office copies of the correspondence between Mr. Ternant and him concerning the advance of the 400,000 Dollars. These copies were prepared some time since and it is not ascertained whether they have been mislaid or forwarded to Mr. Jefferson. A line in answer will oblige.

RC (DLC); endorsed by TJ as received 19 Apr. 1792, but not recorded in SJL or SJPL.

Of the six letters exchanged between Hamilton and Ternant on the subject of advances on the American debt to France, TJ received copies only of Hamilton to Ternant, 8 Mch. 1792, and Ternant to Hamilton, 10 Mch. 1792 (Trs in DLC). For citations to the remainder of the correspondence, see note to TJ to Ternant, 7 Mch. 1792.
