Other Federalists

 

Though The Federalist Papers are properly perceived as the  primary statement of the principles and purposes of the proposed United States Constitution, there were writers other than John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton, who in 1787 and 1788 argued for the Constitution's ratification. Indeed, Herbert J. Storing, Jr. has observed that these “'other' Federalist writings carried the main burden of the public defense of the proposed Constitution … [and] several of them were vastly more influential than The Federalist.”

One must keep in mind that The Federalist Papers were targeted mainly at the citizens of New York.
