Benjamin Goodhue to Samuel Phillips (September 13, 1789)

1
The Amendments have come from the Senate with amendments, such as striking out the word vicinage as applied to Jurors,2 and have struckout the limitation of sums for an appeal to the federal Court &c. Those two have been the darling objects with the Virginians who have been the great movers in amendments, and I am suspicious, it may mar the whole business, at least so far as to refer it to the next session.
