  1. I’m not inside enough of the finer points of the colonial material to comment on how ESM read his sources or how you’re reading him. What I really like about your piece is how you’re pushing us to go beyond reading the standard works re. Consensus e.g. Hofstadter and Boorstin etc. I also like the fact that you give Morgan more credit as a foundational figure, credit that often falls to Bailyn re. the national paradigm. And finally if you’re right it suggests a profound and important transformation in his thought as evinced in later work like American Slavery American Freedom
