Rufus King to Henry Knox (May 27, 1787)

Philadelphia 27 May 87
Seven states assembled on the 25th and appointed Genl. Washington President & Majr. Jackson Secretary of the Convention. If Connecticut, Georgia & Massachusetts are represented tomorrow, we shall have Ten States. I hope this will be the case but the event is uncertain. No proposition has been agitated except in private conversation, and excepting the mere organization of the convention we are as when you left us.
