Abstract: In 1791 Alexander Hamilton submitted as U.S. Secretary of the Treasury a now-famous Report on the Subject of Manufactures. In it he criticized arguments that the U.S. colonies should remain preponderantly agricultural. He does not name the “respectable patrons of opinions” whose views he was contradicting. This paper attempts to clear up the identity mystery.
