First Commentaries on the Constitution published in Massachusetts (September 29, 1787)

A correspondent observes, that the proceedings of the continental convention, as published in our last, must receive the approbation of every man of independent sentiments; of every man who calculates not only for the honour of individual States, and the happiness and glory of independent America, but for those EMPIRES OF REPUBLICAN FREEDOM, which that NOBLE FABRICK, THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION, may usher into existence.1
In anticipating the acceptance of the AMERICAN CONSTITUTION every countenance brightens with the full glow of hope and animating expectation of publick honour, peace and lasting prosperity to our "DEAR COUNTRY."
