"One of the great American state papers, being the first report on public credit. In it Hamilton recommends that the U.S. pay all its war debts, at par value, as well as assume all war debts of the states, thereby establishing both in domestic and foreign circles the honor and credit of the United States. He also presents here for the first time his ideas and plans for a strong central government. By this document the federalist philosophy of American government began, and on or against its principles every statesman for a hundred years based his political career" (Jenkins).
