Richard Henry Lee to Francis Lightfoot Lee New York July 14th, 1787.
I found the Convention at Phila. very busy and very secret. it would seem however, from variety of circumstances that we shall hear of a Government not unlike the B. Constitution, that is, an Executive with 2 branches composing a federal Legislature and possessing adequate Tone.
