John Stevens, Sr. to David Brearley (December 31, 1787)

I am much obliged to you for your favor of the 26th enclosing the Trenton papers. The alteration you made in the answer to the Convention I apporve of, and assure you I shall bear in mind your attetnion to me in this as well as in other instances.
Before I left Trenton I wrote Chancellor [Robert R.] Livingston requesting the favor of him to let me know if Congress had made a house, who wrote me for answer they had not and that there was now only four states on the floor. I shall, however, go over to New Yorkin a short time and wait the first opportunity of delivering my charge to the President [of Congress].
