Daniel Carroll to Michael Morgan O'Brien (May 25, 1787)

My dear friend, Annapolis, May 25th. 1787
Yesterday the General Assembly appointed me one of the Deputies for this State to attend the fœderal Convention in Phila. As this appointment was neither wished for, or expected by me, and I have been detained from home all last Winter and 6 weeks this Spring, it will be some time before I can enter on the execution of this Trust. I dare not think of residing in Philada. during the Summer months. My health, thank God, is much better, than I have been for several years past. Moderate (but constant dayly) exercise, temperance and attention, have in great measure conquered my nervous complaints without the aid of Medicine. I request the favor of you to look out for a convenient and economical situation where I can board in a small family somewhere near my former temporary residence near German Town. I would prefer the Situation from it being High, healthy, and at a suitable distance. You may perhaps think of some other Situation which may answer better under all circumstances. Make no positive agreement. Communicate to me what occurs by post to Georgetown.
13. Farrand chose not to print the remainder of this letter. 22 SUPPLEMENT TO FARRAND'S RECORDS You will receive my answer in time before I can possibly set off. I shall have a servant and two Horses. It is necessary to attend to economy in this business.
