This chapter discusses the Federalist Balance's unmistakably antifeminist message that turbulent women, aspiring to public place, should be silent. This message certainly could be found in print everywhere in the early Republic, but in Hudson in the late fall of 1802 it would have had a powerful and specific resonance. Between December 1801 and June 1802 the Hudson Monthly Meeting of Friends, whose membership encompassed about a third of the city's households, had been wracked with controversy. Over these seven months Hannah Barnard, a recognized minister in the Hudson Meeting who had undertaken a three-year itinerant ministry in Ireland and England, was investigated by a committee for publishing her doctrinal disputes with the London Yearly Meeting.
