Newspaper Report of the Massachusetts Ratification Convention, (January 28, 1788)

This, and the two following days, were taken up in considering the several sections of the second and third articles—Every one of which was objected to by those who were opposed to the Constitution; and the objections were obviated by gentlemen in favour of it. We do not think it essential to go into a minute detail of the conversation; as, in the speeches on the grand question, the field is again gone over—We can only say that, with the utmost attention, every objection, however trifling, was answered; and that the unremitted endeavours of gentlemen who advocated the Constitution, to convince those who were in errour were not without effect. The main objections to the judiciary power are contained in the following speech, delivered on Wednesday January 30.
