Matthew Griswold, President of the Convention to the President of Congress, Hartford, January
I herewith transmit enclosed to you the Ratification of the Convention of delegates from the several towns in the State of Connecticut held at Hartford on the 3rd day of January instant (pursuant to a resolve of the legislature of the state at the sessions of their General Assembly held at New Haven on the second Thursday of October 1787) adopting the Federal Constitution of civil government for the United States of America composed by the Convention held at Philadelphia on the 17th of September last for that purpose which Ratification is subscribed by a great majority of all the delegates appointed by the State of Connecticut to deliberate upon the matters aforesaid. This state will undoubtedly do all in their power to promote the establishment of so salutary a plan of government.
