Col. Alexander Hamilton Mirrored John Calvin

I found this quote by Hamilton that screams of his Calvinism. Off the cuff, it is the most stunningly Calvinist statement I have read by any Founding Father:
"Experience is a continual comment on the worthlessness of the human race; and the few exceptions we find have the greater right to be valued in proportion as they are rare."
-To Colonel Richard K. Meade, Albany, August 27, 1782.
