Georgia Convention Ratification Announcement: Salem Mercury (February 12, 1788)

It has for some time been considered as a fact that the Georgian Pillar of the Federal Structure had been erected—founded merely on the report that a vessel had arrived at Cape Ann from Georgia, with such intelligence which report was totally void of truth. We are happy, however, to find, by the papers received by yesterday's mail, that that event has taken place, which will appear from the following:
"Extract of a letter from a mercantile house in Charleston, to one in Philadelphia, dated Jan. 12:
"It gives us much pleasure to advise you that the State of Georgia have adopted the Federal Constitution; and have no doubt but ours will follow their example early in the spring."
