“Your Obedient Servant” includes 10 of the most significant letters that have never been illustrated. The text of the letters has not appeared collectively in a single volume since “Interview in Weehawken” (1960).

Collection That Inspired ‘Your Obedient Servant’
COOPERTOWN – The 35 letters between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr leading up to the fatal duel, owned by The Fenimore Art Museum, have been well-known to historians.
The song, “Your Obedient Servant,” in the hit Broadway museum “Hamilton,” made their content familiar to the general public.
Now, with $70,000 in grants from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, The Fenimore announced this week it will publish a book containing all the letters, will create a “virtual gallery” to make the letters available online, and is planning four public programs to explore and explain their significance.
