George Clymer to Richard Peters (June 8, 1789)

1
Madison this morning is to make an essay towards amendments—but whether he means merely a tub to the whale, or declarations about the press liberty of conscience &c. or will suffer himself to be so far frightened with the antifederalism of his own state as to attempt to lop off essentials I do not know—2I hope however we shall be strong enough to postpone. . . . Afternoon—Madison's has proved a tub on a number of Ad. but Gerry is not content with them alone, and proposes to treat us with all the amendments of all the antifœderalists in America.
