William Livingston to John Tabor Kempe (August 25, 1787)

Philadelphia 25 August 1787 Sir I received your letter of the 11th of April a few days before I set out the second time for this place as a member of the federal convention of the United States. Having left that Body for a week to adjust my private affairs which were rather deranged when I joined it as I had been previously a month at Burlington with our Legislature and went from thence to the Convention without returning home it was impossible for me to enter upon the agreeable task of serving you.
