    More Information:

    "In these documents are constellated more than the learning and the wisdom of other days. The native, the original conceptions of this creative genius, give life and light to every subject. Every page bears its own peculiar testimony to the vastness of his mind -- the soundness of his judgment -- the clearness of his views -- and the integrity of his heart. The humblest peasant, who loves his country and participates in her weal and wo, as well as the statesman and politician whose feelings and interests are more particularly identified with the subject, will read these Reports with mingled wonder and delight" (from the Preface)."The sixth edition [of the Federalist] was published in 1810 by Williams and Whiting of New York, and formed the second and third volumes of the 'Writings of Hamilton' [sic.]."
