Philadelphia 27 July 1787
Dear Sir:
The Convention adjourned yesterday to meet on Monday the 6th of next Month, by which Time, it is expected, the Business will be detailed. It is of Moment, that the Representation should be complete, and I hope, that Mr. Yates and yourself will not fail to attend on the very Day. The Commissioners from New Hampshire arrived a few Days ago: so that with a Representative from your State, all the States, except Rhode Island, will be on the Floor.
I hope to see you and Mr. Yates at New Brunswick on your Way to Philadelphia.
My best respects await the Judge.
