Richard Dobbs Spaight to John Gray Blount (May 30, 1787)

RICHARD DOBBS SPAIGHT TO JOHN GRAY BLOUNT
Philadelphia, 3oth May 1787
Dear Sir:
. . . A Convention was not formed untill friday last, and then only by seven states; at present we have nine; Genl. Washington was of course unanimously elected President. The business being only just begun, it is a difficult point to say when we shall make a finish. Indeed I fear that much time will be expended in this business, much more than I expected when I came from home, and of course another supply of cash must take place to enable us to stay here. Should that article be deemed necessary and the Govt. grant warrants for a farther advance of salary would it be agreeable to you to remit mine to me? . . .
