George Washington to John Jay (September 2, 1787)

Philadelphia Sept. 2d 1787
I regret not having had it in my power to visit New York during the adjournment of the Convention, last Month. — not foreseeing with any precission the period at which it was likely to take place or the length of it, I had put my carriage in the hands of a workman to be repaired and had not the means of mooving during the recess but with, or the curtisy of, others.
I thank you for the hints contained in your letter
