George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Alexander Hamilton, 11 December 1793

To Alexander Hamilton

Philadelphia 11th Decr 1793

Dear Sir,

I was led the other day to reflect, whether I had ever put into your hands the last, as well as the first letter, which A.G. Frauncis wrote to me concerning the Warrants.1 Finding no trace of any remarks from you to me, I take it for granted, that I omitted to do with respect to the last, what I had done with respect to the first. But being uncertain, how far the new matter, which is suggested, may be thought worthy of your attention, I have concluded to forward it to you; and when you have read it, you will return it to Dear Sir Yours sincerely

Go: Washington

1GW was referring to letters of 30 July and 19 August, in which Andrew G. Fraunces complained about Hamilton’s role in the nonpayment of certain warrants for Revolutionary War debt held by Fraunces. For Hamilton’s report on the first letter, see his letter to GW of 9 August.
