JAY TO GENERAL SCHUYLER.
Bedford, 25th July, 1804.
My Dear Sir:
The friendship and attachment which I have so long and so uniformly experienced from you will not permit me to delay expressing how deeply and sincerely I participate with you in the afflicting event1 which the public are now lamenting, and which you have so many domestic and particular reasons to bewail.
The philosophic topics of consolation are familiar to you, and we all know from experience how little relief is to be derived from them. May the Author and only Giver of consolation be and remain with you.
With great esteem and affectionate regard, I am, dear sir,
Your obliged and obedient servant,
[1 ]Death of Hamilton.
