dc.description.abstract Mode of access: Online. OTA website Hamilton, Alexander, 1757-1804 Madison, James, 1751-1836 Jay, John, 1745-1829 These 85 essays were originally published anonymously, under the name of "Publius", to urge the people of New York to ratify the United States Constitution which had been proposed in the Summer before the publication of the first essay. The essays therefore give detailed explanations of particular provisions of the Constition and, given that two of the authors were members of the Constitutional Convention, the Papers are still often used to aid the interpretation of the intention of those drafting the Constitution

This is the Project Gutenberg 1.1 release of The Federalist Papers Due to an error in file transfer the 1.0 version was decapitated of all but the first section of the five sections we received in which the following information was contained in various mark-up formats and various footnoting conventions. You may note in the middle portion that the footnotes are different, and indentation is practically non-existent. We hope to have this fixed in only a week or so, as we are requesting new copies from which to work and we are also requesting a scholarly review of this file, from Tom Horton (one of the requestors of the file. . .Tom. . .help-- are you out there). So, please bear in mind that while editions from Project Gutenberg are not supposed to be authoritative, our expectations are to provide you with documents that are at least internally consistent. Therefore, the next release or two would be in hopes of clearing this up immediate . . .
