1Philip Marsh states that the defense of the Bank of the United States which was published under “Original Communications” was “apparently” written by H (“Hamilton’s Neglected Essays, 1791–1793,” The New-York Historical Society Quarterly, XXXII [October, 1948], 291). On June 29, 1792, Thomas Jefferson wrote to James Madison: “The present will cover [John] Fenno of the 23d & 27th. In the last you will discover Hamilton’s pen in defence of the bank, and daring to call the republican party a faction” (Ford, Writings of Jefferson description begins Paul Leicester Ford, The Writings of Thomas Jefferson (New York, 1892–1899). description ends , VI, 95). No additional evidence that H was the author of this article has been found.
