James Madison, author of Federalist No. 14

Federalist No. 14 is an essay by James Madison, the fourteenth of the Federalist Papers. It was published on November 30, 1787 under the pseudonym Publius, the name under which all the Federalist Papers were published. It addresses a major objection of the Anti-Federalists to the proposed United States Constitution: that the sheer size of the United States would make it impossible to govern justly as a single country. Madison touched on this issue in Federalist No. 10 and returns to it in this essay. No. 14 is titled "Objections to the Proposed Constitution From Extent of Territory Answered."
