NY Ratification Convention Debates (July 22, 1788) - New York Daily Advertiser (July 25, 1788)

Extract of a letter from Poughkeepsie, dated July 22.1
". . . To-Day the Convention have been also upon the consideration of the amendments—most all of them were carried, and very little debate on any of them. The amendment for giving the president a council in the appointment to offices, was rejected by a great majority; only ten voted for it. Several of the opposition, and among the rest Mr. M. Smith, voted against the amendment for requiring two-thirds of Congress to concur in declaring war: However, it was carried."2
