Mrs. Hamilton could never forget tho U'havior of Monroe when Ire, with Muhlenberg and Venables, accused Hamilton of financial irregularities at the tinio of the Kevnolds Incident. Many jvars afterward when they were both aged people Monroe visited her. and an Interview occurred which was witnessed hj a nephew, who was then a lad of fifteen. "I had," he says. "been sent to call upon hit Aunt Ham ilton one afternoon. I found her In Iter parden mid was there with her talking when n maidservant came from the house with a card. It was the card of James Monroe. She read the namo and stood holding the card. much perturbed. Her voice sunk, and Kip? Fpoko very low as she always did when she was an-iy. 'What has that man come to see mo for?' escaped I from her. 'Why. Aunt Hamilton. said I. 'don't you know it's Mr. Monroe, and he's been president, and he Is vis iting here now lu t ho neighborhood and has been very much made of and Invited everywhere, and so I suppose' lie has come to call and pay his re spects to you?'
