The various foreign Gentlemen connected in the American Trade will have great safety hereafter in their Connexions with this Country from the final Adoption & ratification of the new form of Government. No papers tenders & no law impairing or staying the execution of Contracts can hereafter take place,1 and our State courts will not have to determine between foreigners & us; but an impartial federal Court We hope too the general effects upon Morals Industry &ca. will be favorable to those who deal with us or who may transfer their families & property to this part of the World We have the pleasure to enclose you a Copy of the Procession which took place here from which you will see the Nature of the various crafts carried on here It may be matter of Amusement if handed to one of your printers for Publication - This City is likely to become the Seat of the new Government which will encrease the Demand for West India Articles, & will have a favorable effect, we expect, on business in general2
