Welcome to my blog

My blog, at least for the time being, will focus on Jay, Seward and my research and writing.

Since my Jay book appeared, six years ago now, I have spoken about him many times, at schools, libraries, historical societies and bookstores. One reason I enjoy these events is that it is a chance to focus on particular aspects of Jay’s life, such as his relationship with George Washington or his work as a lawyer and judge. What follows are the remarks I made at a John Jay Institute event in Philadelphia in May 2010. Click here to read the remarks in PDF format.
