Alexander Hamilton to Rufus King.2
New York, Aug. 28, 1787.
I wrote to you some days since to request you to inform me when there was a prospect of your finishing, as I intended to be with you, for certain reasons, before the conclusion.
It is whispered here that some late changes in your scheme have taken place which give it a higher tone. Is this the case?
I leave town today to attend a circuit in a neighboring County, from which I shall return the last of the week; and shall be glad to find a line from you explanatory of the period of the probable termination of your business.
