Elbridge Gerry to Samuel Gerry (August 12, 1787)

Philadelphia 12 Aug 1787
Dear I am favoured with yours of July 8th and since the Receipt of it have been to New York to accompany Mrs. Gerry and her baby, with whom this City did not very well agree. Indeed the Convention adjourned for about ten Days and We improved the Opportunity to take an airing. I have left them there by the Advice of all her Friends, as the Heat of Philadelphia in the Month of August might prove injurious to our Infant.
. . . The Convention will probably agree in a Constitution which will have some Force, but I am not at Liberty yet to make any Communications.
My Regards to Mrs. Gerry, your Family and all our Friends and be assured I am ever yours sincerely E. Gerry.
