James Madison to Edmund Pendleton (August 21, 1789)

The last 8 or 10 days have been spent on the subject of amendts. The work has been extremely difficult and fatiguing, as well on account of the dilatory artifices of which some of the antifederal members are suspected, as of the diversity of opinions & fancies inseparable from such an Assembly as Congress. At present there is a prospect of finishing to day, the plan so far as it lies with the H. of Reps.1 It does not differ much from the original propositions offered on that subject. The Judiciary bill was postponed to consider the preceding subject.
