Notes on Alexander Hamilton, 19 November 1792

Notes on Alexander Hamilton

Nov. 19. 92. Beckley brings me the pamphlet written by Hamilton before the war in answer to Common Sense. It is entitled ‘Plain Truth.’ Melancton Smith sends it to Beckley and in his letter says it was not printed in N. York by Loudon1 because prevented by a Mob, and was printed in Philada., and that he has these facts from Loudon.

MS (DLC); entirely in TJ's hand; written on the same sheet as the “Anas” entry for [18–19] Nov. 1792, the recto of which contains two “Anas” entries for 11 Nov. 1792.
