A View of the Conduct of the Executive

By James Monroe
Philadelphia: Benjamin Franklin Bache, 1797

James Monroe’s critique of Washington’s foreign policy prompted the first president to respond with written comments in the margins. This book contains more notes in Washington’s hand than any of the surviving books from his library.
