Rufus King to Nathan Dane (May 27, 1787)

Philadelphia 27 May 87
Dear Sir New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware Virginia North and South Carolina were represented on Friday; and the Convention proceeded to appoint Genl. Washington their President and Major Jackson their secretary. We are adjourned until Tomorrow and flatter ourselves that Massachusetts Connecticut and Georgia will be then represented. Maryland has one Delegate present, but it is uncertain when his Colleagues will arrive. Nothing has transpired in the present unopened condition of the business of this meeting which furnishes reasonable Grounds even to conjecture the Result of their Deliberations. . . .
