Previous to a more particular discussion of the merits of the Treaty, it may be useful to advert to a suggestion which has been thrown out, namely that it was foreseen by many, that the mission to Great Britain would produce no good result, and that the event has corresponded with the anticipation. The reverse of this position is manifestly true. All must remember the very critical posture of...
The manner in which the power of Treaty as it exists in the Constitution was understood by the Convention, in framing it, and by the people in adopting it, is the point next to be considered. As to the sense of the Convention, the secrecy with which their deliberations were conducted does not permit any formal proof of the opinions and views which prevailed in digesting the power of Treaty....
The sixth article stipulates compensation to British Creditors for losses and damages which may have been sustained by them, in consequence of certain legal impediments, which since the Treaty of Peace with Great Britain, are alleged to have obstructed the recovery of debts bona fide contracted with them before the peace. To a man who has a due sense of the sacred obligation of a just debt, a...
It will be useful, as it will simplify the Examination of the commercial articles of the Treaty, to bear in mind and preserve the Division that we find established by the 12. 13. & the 14. & 15. articles. Each respects a particular Branch or portion of the trade between the two Countries, the regulations whereof, differ from, and are severally independent of each other. Thus one is relative to...
The course thus far pursued in the discussion of the 18th article has inverted the order of it as it stands in the Treaty. It is composed of three clauses the two last of which have been first examined. I thought it adviseable in the outset to dispose of an objection which has been the principal source of clamour. The first clause, or that which remains to be examined, enumerates the articles...
The discussion in the two last numbers has shewn if I mistake not, that this Country by no means stands upon such good ground with regard to the inexecution of the Treaty of peace as some of our official proceedings have advanced and as many among us have too lightly creditted. The task of displaying this truth has been an unwelcome one. As long as a contrary doctrine was either a mere essay...
The Second Article of the Treaty stipulates that his Britannic Majesty will withdraw all his troops and garrisons from all posts and places within the boundary lines assigned by the Treaty of Peace to the U States; and that this evacuation shall take place on or before the first day of June 1796—the United States in the mean time at their discretion extending their settlements to any part...
One of the particulars in which our Envoy is alleged to have fallen short of what might and ought to have been done respects the time for the surrender of the Western posts. It is alleged, that there ought either to have been an immediate surrender or some guarantee or surety for the performance of the new promise. Both parts of the alternative presuppose that Great Britain was to have no will...

The said John Campbell agrees to proceed forthwith to Scotland in the Kingdom of Great Britain there to endeavor to purchase and to ship from thence to the united States on account of the said Nicholas Low & Abijah Hammond the following articles, Eight Stocking...
110[Candor], [18 August 1792] (Hamilton Papers)
[Philadelphia] Gazette of the United States , August 18, 1792. Philip 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,...
