The Reynolds Pamphlet is the 14th song of Act Two of Hamilton. It is the 37th song overall.

Making his decision, Hamilton decides to publicize his scandal to the public in his The Reynolds Pamphlet, thoroughly explaining his account of the incident and preventing Jefferson from doing so. Through the publication, Elizabeth Schuyler finds about about the affair, along with Angelica Schuyler, who sails from her home in England for her sister and to oppose Hamilton.

The Reynolds Pamphlet

[MADISON/JEFFERSON/ANGELICA]
Have you read this?

[JEFFERSON/MADISON/BURR]
Alexander Hamilton had a torrid affair
And he wrote it down right here

[MADISON]
Highlights!


[HAMILTON & JEFFERSON]
"The charge against me is a connection
With one James Reynolds
For purposes of improper speculation
My real crime is an amorous
Connection with his wife
For a considerable time
With his knowing consent"


[JAMES]
James Reynolds

[BURR]
My real crime is an amorous
Connection with his wife


[JEFFERSON/MADISON/BURR]
Damn!

[HAMILTON/MADISON/JEFFERSON]
"I had frequent meetings with her
Most of them at my own house"

[BURR]
At his own house?

[MADISON]
At his own house!

[PLAYBACK VOICE]
Damn!

[HAMILTON & JEFFERSON]
"Mrs. Hamilton with our children
Being absent, on a visit to her father."

[MADISON & BURR]
No

Boo!

[JEFFERSON]
Whaaaaat?!

[HAMILTON]

All the way from London?!

[HAMILTON]
Angelica, thank God, someone
Who understand what I'm
Struggling here to do

[ANGELICA]
I'm not here for you

[COMPANY]
Ooooh!

[ANGELICA]
I know my sister like I know my own mind
You will never find anyone as
Trusting or as kind
I love my sister more than anything in this life
I will choose her happiness over mine every time
Put what we had aside
I'm standing at her side
You could never be satisfied
God, I hope you're satisfied


[JEFFERSON/MADISON/BURR]
Well, he never gon' be president now
Well, he never gon' be president now
Well, he never gon' be president now
Well, he never gon' be president now


[ENSEMBLE MEN]
Never gon' be president now
Never gon' be president now
Never gon' be president now
Never gon' be president now



[JEFFERSON & MADISON]
Hey! At least he was honest with our money

Hey! At least he was honest with our money


[HAMILTON]
Hey! At least I was honest with our money

Hey! At least he was honest with our money


[ENSEMBLE WOMEN]
Well he's never gon' be president now
Well he's never gon' be president now
Well he's never gon' be president now
That's one less thing to worry about


[ENSEMBLE MEN]
Well he's never gon' be president now
Well he's never gon' be president now

You ever see someone ruin their own life?

[COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON & ELIZA)]
His poor wife
