NY Ratification Convention Debates (July 11, 1788) - New York Daily Advertiser (July 15, 1788)

"This morning Mr. Jay brought forward the grand question, by a resolution for adopting the Constitution; he spoke forcibly, and commanded great attention: the Chancellor also spoke with his usual energy and brilliancy. Our worthy Chief Justice was also on his legs. Mr. Smith, Mr. Lansing and the Governor, spoke against the resolution, and from what fell from them, they seem determined to support a conditional adoption; this the FÅ“deralists consider as a rejection under another name, and no doubt will protest against it. I am at a loss what opinion to offer; I fear much from the pride and perverseness of some, and more from the wicked ambition of others."
