June 18, 1787, fell in the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. On June 18, New York delegate Alexander Hamilton, who helped make the Convention possible, made a speech as to his own plan of government (probably not content to add on to the Virginia or New Jersey plans). The plan involved an "elective monarch", as stated in Madison's notes, a Senate with electors chosen for life on "good behavior", a House of Reps. chosen every three years. The June 18 speech would forever be dredged up in later years when Hamilton was vilified as a "monarchist", as he used the dreaded word in his speech. Hamilton's fears of mob rule completely beat out his hopes, leading to the speech that he would regret in later years.
