James McClurg to James Madison (August 22, 1787)

Richmond Augt. 22. 87.
I have so much pleasure from your communications, that I shall be careful to acknowledge the receipt of them, with a view to secure their continuance.
I have still some hope that I shall hear from you of ye reinstatement of ye Negative — as it is certainly ye only mean by which the several Legislatures can be restrain'd from disturbing ye order & harmony of ye whole, & ye Governmt. render'd properly national, & one. I should suppose yt some of its former opponents must by this time have seen ye necessity of advocating it, if they wish to support their own principles.
