    James Hamilton Letter Signed as Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania, one page, 7.75" x 12.5", Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, March 12, 1761, "to the Assembly". As Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania, Hamilton (ca. 1710-1783) here writes in part: "As I look upon His Majesty's Service, as well as the security of the Province to be nearly concern'd in your complying with General Amherst's requisition...I was in hopes, before this time, to have received an answer signifying your willingness to accede to the measure therein recommended. Which not having been the case: I am under the necessity of...urging to you a speedy compliance with the General's request of 'Three Hundred Men properly officer'd to serve as Garrisons at the several Forts & posts within the communication to Pittsburgh'...". Mild toning as expected, very fine condition. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
