Extract From The Pennsylvania Journal (August 22, 1787)

[August 22, 1787.]
We are informed, that many letters have been written to the members of the fœderal convention from different quarters, respecting the reports idly circulating, that it is intended to establish a monarchical government, to send for the bishop of Osnaburgh, &c., &c. — to which it has been uniformly answered, tho' we cannot, affirmatively, tell you what we are doing, we can, negatively, tell you what we are not doing — we never once thought of a king.1<1/span>
