Excerpt from A Collection of the Facts and Documents, Relative to the Death of Major-General Alexander Hamilton: With Comments; Together With the Various Orations, Sermons, and Eulogies, That Have Been Published or Written on His Life and Character
I have maturely reected on the subject of your letter of the 18th inst. And the more I have reected the more I have become convinced, that I could not, without mani fest impropriety, make the avowal or disavowal which you seem to think necessary. The clause pointed out by Mr. Van Ness is in these terms I could detail to you a still more despicable Opinion which General Hamilton has ex pressed of Mr. Burr. To endeavour to discover the meaning of this declaration, I was obliged to seek in the antecedent part of this letter for the opinion to which it referred, as having been already disclosed. I found it in these words: General Hamilton and Judge Kent have declared in substance, that they looked upon Mr. Burr to be a dangerous man, and one who ought not to be trusted with the reins of government.
