Since the note to the Vindication of Congress (p. 3) was printed, a thorough search among the Hamilton papers has shown that all that exists of the Vindication among the original MSS. has been printed, with the exception of the following additional paragraph:
“It may appear extraordinary that these observations should be introductory to remarks on the transaction which at this time principally engages the public attention, to wit, the removal of Congress from this city; but there is a chain of ideas which naturally connects the general opinion of Congress with the judgment to be passed upon their conduct in this particular instance. This chain will easily be traced by men of discernment.”
Nothing has been discovered to show where Mr. J.C. Hamilton obtained the extracts, apparently from the Vindication, given in his History of the Republic, ii., 564 et seq.
