Memories of a young Alexander Hamilton
A heart memory exploration with Loie

NEVIS

In the summer of 2015, during my conversations with the Sphere Alliance data collectors, I was told that my prior life to this one, had been as Alexander Hamilton. I have had no personal recollection of this life as that man, its one thing to be told it, another to feel it and recall it.  Until now I have not had access any of these memories.  I don't know the precise dates of the images nor the ages, so any amateur historians will have bear with me. I just know the images and what I felt, smelled, and saw from these old memories.

Alexander grew up on the Caribbean island of Nevis, was largely self-taught.  His legal status as an "illegitimate son" meant the church run schools would not admit him.  He was privately tutored by Jewish scholars, worked as a merchant assistant, and wrote various newspaper articles and poetry as a teenager on the island of Nevis. One article he wrote for the local newspaper about a hurricane that ravaged Nevis, so stirred emotions on the American mainland that assistance was sent to the island. Nevis locals sensing the young Alexander's potential, raised enough funds for  him to get passage on a ship to New York City, where he went to college and studied law and became part of American colonial history.
