Rufus King to Henry Knox (June 3, 1787)

Philadelphia 3 June 87 Mr. Jennifer has arrived from Maryland. Mr. Danl. Carrol, and Mr. Mercer, who was formerly in Congress from Virginia, are in the Maryland Deputation and are expected in a few days—Eleven States are represented, but we proceed slowly—I am unable to form any precise Opinion of the Results—Nothing however very important has turned up and issued unfavorably . . . the weather has been, and continues, very cold for the season; we have now a Fire in our Chamber and find it extremely pleasant- Farrand, 4:64
