Acted as aid de Camp to General Washington during a great part of the American War; and after the Peace, contributed greatly by his Writings, under the signature of Phocion, to eradicate the animosities which still remained in the minds of the People. He was the only member from New-York, who remained firm at his Post during the Federal Convention of 1787; and afterwards, by his Essays, under the Signature of Federalist, and his irrefragable arguments in the State Convention, was the happy means of getting the New Constitution ratified by the state of New-York. He was appointed Secretary of the Treasury in 1789, and after having resigned, retired to private Life in 1795. [PP. 16-17.]
