Samuel Nasson to George Thatcher (June 16, 1789)

1
As to the Inteligence you give me I Skipt. over the first part and come to what you Say of Amendments you think that they will be agreed two soon or Quick Demised I hope you will be Enabled to do your Duty I am more and more Convinced that they are Necessary you think that we are in no Dangour from Congress I hope in God they will be kept from doing what will finaly End in the Distruction of our Libertys.
I am Convinced that if we allways have men in the house and Senate that feel for the people then we Shall not be in any Dangour nor Should we if we had not a Constitution But Sir I would that we had Such a one that they might not have power to make laws which would affect the Libertys of the people.
