James Madison Papers

To James Madison from Alexander Hamilton, 22 July 1788

From Alexander Hamilton

July 22d. 1788

Dr Sir,

I wrote to you by the last post since which nothing material has turned up here. We are debating on amendments without having decided what is to be done with them. There is so great a diversity in the views of our opponents that it is impossible to predict any thing. Upon the whole however our fears diminish. Yrs Affecty

A Hamilton

I take the liberty for certain reasons to put the inclosed under cover to you. Be so good as to send it to my office to the care of Mr. De Haert1 will2 it will be called for.

RC (DLC). Addressed by Hamilton. Docketed by JM.

1Balthazar De Haert was Hamilton’s law partner.

2Hamilton doubtless intended to write “where.”
