Alexander Hamilton Papers

[Candor], [18 August 1792]


[Philadelphia, August 18, 1792]

[Philadelphia] Gazette of the United States, August 18, 1792.

1Philip Marsh has written: “On August 18th, answering a charge by ‘G.’ in the National Gazette for the 15th, ‘Candor’ demolished the idea that Fenno had a monopoly of Treasury printing. By the undeniable tone of authority and the unmistakable style, ‘Candor’ with little doubt is Hamilton again” (“Hamilton’s Neglected Essays, 1791–1793,” The New-York Historical Society Quarterly, XXXII [October, 1948], 292). No conclusive evidence, however, has been found that H wrote the article signed “Candor.”
