John Dickinson to George Read (September 15, 1787)

September 15 Dear Sir, Yesterday I was prevented by a severe Headache from attending in Convention, and I am now setting off for Wilmington. Some person mentioned to Me, that the Members were to give an Entertainment to the Gentlemen of the Town, from whom we have received Civilities. I therefore beg that You will apply the enclosed Bank bill for Me to that Use. I am Sir Your sincere Friend John Dickinson
