Chapter XIX "The Damnation of Mr. Jay", undated
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists of the original typescript of Monaghan's biography John Jay, which was the first to be written by a non-family member. Jay's authorship of many of the Federalist essays, his varied career as governor of New York, president of the Continental Congress, and first chief justice of the United States, as well as his role as negotiator of the Peace of 1783 and author of the Jay Treaty of 1794--these are some of the subjects of the biography. Included are miscellaneous notes about Jay.
