[probably New York], 16 April 1796, two pages; top margin of blank second leaf cut away. Théophile Cazenove was an agent for the Holland Land Company who worked closely with Hamilton. — Autograph fragment of a document, docketed “ Plea for Thompson,” n.p., n.d.

The document possibly refers to Hamilton's appointment by Robert Morris (15 April 1782) as receiver of Continental taxes.
