Rufus King to Nathan Dane (July 11, 1787)

Philadelphia 11 July 1787 Dear Sir I Thank you for your letter by Monday's post. The period of the Convention is as uncertain as when they first assembled. I hope they will agree in some just and reasonable reform of the Articles of Union. But you are too well acquainted with the situation of our Country not to be sensible that there are a variety of considerations which will operate against an unanimity in the Opinions of the Delegates of the several states. Perhaps however they may unite in their Judgments.
