    Summary

    In Constitutional Convention, there was an interview between Hamilton, the Morrises, and others. Hamilton remarked that Washington was reserved and aristocratic even to his intimate friends, and allowed no one to be familiar with him. Gouverneur Morris said that he could be as familiar with Washington as with any of his other friends. Hamilton replied, “If you will, at the next reception evening, gently slap him on the shoulder and say, ‘My dear General, how happy I am to see you look so well!’ a supper and wine shall be provided for you and a dozen of your friends.”

    The challenge was accepted. On the evening appointed a large number attended, and at an early hour Gouverneur Morris entered, bowed, shook hands, laid his left hand on Washington’s shoulder, and said: “My dear General, I am very happy to see you look so well!” Washington withdrew his hand, stepped suddenly back, fixed his eye on Morris for several minutes with an angry frown, until the latter retreated abashed and sought refuge in the crowd. The company looked on in silence.

    At the supper which was provided by Hamilton, Morris said: “I have won the bet but paid dearly for it, and nothing could induce me to repeat it.”

    Summary

    John Laurens is the star of the basketball team. He's gotten used to the commotion surrounding his appearance; that's not what makes him nervous. What makes him nervous is what the assistant coach thinks of him. Alexander doesn't seem to be impressed by much; even when he is, he continues to push people away. He isolates himself. If John learned anything growing up, it's that nobody deserves to be alone.
