oversee the finances of the conf federation of former colonies

00:25

until september seventeen eighty nine when congress officially established department

00:28

of the treasury that still exist today Well what do

00:31

you think Yes or no kind of thumbs up Thumbs

00:33

down on this would come at the end of the

00:35

essay does kind of have some punch to it Yeah

00:38

sort of summarizes things and well the essay is called

00:42

the beginnings of the treasury and that's important because conclusions

00:46

like to be circular So you always ask yourself what's

00:48

the title of something when you think about what the

00:51

last sentence should be and that's if you're lost and

00:53

totally clueless on these kind of questions that's probably the

00:56

first thing you ought to ask yourselves what's the title

00:58

and then how do i kind of keep it Well

01:00

but after the first sentence today's modern treasury also known

01:03

as the department of the treasury has never mentioned only

01:07

its predecessors are So this new sentence fixes that by

01:10

wrapping up the narrative and pointing directly to the founding

01:13

of the department of treasury Yeah they don't mention hamilton

01:16

here though nor any of the singing they should Well

01:19

okay so that's it loser bowl Well there's no specific

01:22

or even implied question contained in the new sentence so

01:25

get rid of me That was wrong but what we're

01:26

left pondering is what we've been pondering the whole time

01:29

How could the country have been so bad with money

01:32

The purpose of the essay is to explain how the

01:34

department of treasury came to be which is exactly the

01:37

information contained in the new sentenced it's True that the

01:40

department of the treasury named in this new last sense

01:42

is the same one we have today but the sentence

01:45

keeps the action in the past So bub i d

01:48

and all the others answers a yes because it supports

01:51

the purpose of the essay and completes the narrative and

01:54

completes this whole essay writing section Thank you very much 00:01:58.406 --> [endTime] Good night
