Newspaper Report 5 of Pennsylvania Convention Proceedings (December 13, 1787)

A correspondent says, "It is worthy of remark, that amongst the various classes of citizens who consider their interests and happiness essentially combined with, and dependent upon the adoption of the proposed Constitution for the United States of America, the ship carpenters of Philadelphia have given the most irrefragable proof of their approbation of the same by conducting, on the evening of its ratification by this state, a vessel on wheels through the streets of this city, decorated with flags and insignia emblematical of their fixed expectation of the revival of commerce and navigation under this happy government."
