For the record. (Letters to the Editor).

Regarding Mr. John F. McManus' review of Quest of a Hemisphere ("Quest for True American History," October 21st issue), there is an error regarding the John Peter Zenger case of 1735. I do not know if the error was originally made by the book's author (Donzella Cross Boyle) or by the reviewer, but the notation of a young Alexander Hamilton defending Mr. Zenger is an error. The correct defense attorney was Andrew Hamilton from Philadelphia. Alexander Hamilton was around 19 when he became involved in the cause for Independence around 1775! I know the error is minor, but I appreciate your magazine for its factual representation of history and current events, and any error gives the enemies of truth and freedom ammunition to discredit your services. Please keep up the good work, and know that there are still real Americans present in New York City.

The error appeared in the review but not in the book. We appreciate Mr. Nelson bringing the mistake to our attention.--Ed.
