Edmund Randolph to Beverley Randolph (May 27, 1787)

Philadelphia, May 27, 1787.
Seven States met on friday, appointed a committee to prepare rules, and adjourned 'till Monday. In four or five days we shall probably have every State represented, except Rhode Island, which has peremptorily refused to appoint deputies, and new Hampshire, of which we can hear nothing certain but her friendly temper towards the Union. I aught, however, to add, that a respectable minority in R. Island are solicitous that their State should participate in the Convention.
