Rufus King to Henry Knox (July 11, 1787)

Philadelphia II July 1787
I wish it was in my power to inform you that we had progressed a single step since you left us — I say progressed; this expression must be defined by my own political Creed, which you are very well acquainted with—I can form no conjecture of the Report, or separation, of the convention—If I had returned to N-Yk with you or with our very able and segacious Friend Hamilton, I should have escaped much Vexation, enjoyed much pleasure and have gratified the earnest wishes & desires of Mrs. King—
Farrand, 4:68.
