On his last Ham4Ham for awhile Miranda read a love letter from Hamilton written in 1780 to his future wife, Eliza.

“It kind of captures everything I love about Hamilton,” explains Miranda in the above clip. “He’s kind of arrogant, he’s kind of insecure, he’s unbelievably romantic, it’s funny and sad – it’s basically him saying to Eliza, ‘Don’t marry me if you think you can’t be happy broke. Because we might end up broke.’”

After finishing the letter, Miranda welcomed departing cast members Leslie Odom Jr. (the 2016 Best Actor in a Musical Tony winner for his portrayal of Aaron Burr) and Phillipa Soo (Eliza Schuyler Hamilton) for a fitting rendition of “Happy Trails.”

Miranda, Odom and Soo give their final “Hamilton” performances this Saturday, July 9.

Two-time Tony Award nominee Brandon Victor Dixon ( Shuffle Along) will begin performances mid-August (date TBA) as Aaron Burr and joining July 11 are Lexi Lawson in the role of Eliza Hamilton and Michael Luwoye as the Alexander Hamilton alternate. Lawson played Mimi in the tour of Rent and Vanessa in the tour of In the Heights, makes her Broadway debut by joining the cast as Eliza. Luwoye also makes his Broadway debut and most recently Off-Broadway in the musical Invisible Thread. Sydney James Harcourt, Austin Smith and Andrew Chappelle are currently the understudies for the role of Aaron Burr.
