This volume is concerned with the effort of Alexander Hamilton (designated as a€œNumber 7a€ in the dispatches of a British secret agent) as Secretary of the Treasury, aided by powerful support in the Senate and House of Representatives, to guide American foreign policy toward a closer connection with Great Britain. The book shows that Hamilton revealed secret cabinet discussions to a British intelligence agent, failed to inform Washington and Secretary of State Jefferson of his discussions with the British agent, and finally under impact of the war crisis informed them falsely. Hamilton committed a€œalmost the gravest offense of which a cabinet officer can be guilty in his role of responsible advisor to the head of a state, a€ says Professor Boyd. The text of this volume, except for the Foreword, the concluding passages, and a few additional documents, is contained in Volume 17 of The Papers of Thomas Jefferson. Originally published in 1964.

Boyd ... in the first period of his peacetime services in New York he operated covertly and his expenses were such as a British army officer on his travels might have had; ... matters of importance that might a€œnot all readily find their way into a more direct channela€a€”that is, by the reports of Bond, Temple, Miller, and others.
