Notes on Debates by Pierce Butler (June 25, 1787)

Mr. Willson. Because a State Government ought to elect a general Government the general Government ought as well to appoint the State Governments. He objects to the state Governments having anything to do in electing the general Governments. The general Government is not to be considered as composed from different States. Commerce, he says must be common.
