3618. HAMILTON (Alexander), Corruption and.—

Hamilton was indeed a singular
character. Of acute understanding, disinterested,
honest, and honorable in all private
transactions, amiable in society, and duly valuing
virtue in private life, yet so bewitched and
perverted by the British example, as to be under
thorough conviction that corruption was essential
to the government of a nation.—
