Kenneth Rendell Catalog # 45 (1970), item 40. Autograph Letter signed, 1
p., New York. With address leaf docketed by Jay. Reply to Jay's letter of 22 August. The
condition of refunding $100 for every day less than eight that Burr spent at Hartford
was so peculiar that Burr called on Hamilton to make sure there had been no confusion.
It seems that conf usion, did, indeed exist between Hamilton and Jay. Hamilton "supposes
that the eight days are to be counted on the whole time of absence." Under this
interpretation, Burr will accept the assignment.
