Benjamin Goodhue to Michael Hodge (July 30, 1789)

1
inclosed I send you such amendments as a Committee of one from each State have reported, they are such as the Committee conceived might quiet the minds of the dissatisfied without injuring the Constitution, and as far as I can judge of the prevailing sentiments of the members they appear to be impressed with the policy of proposing such amendments, provided there is a probibility of giving quiet by so cheap a purchase—other amendments of an injurious nature will be likely to be moved for, but will be rejected.
