Description
He presumes to address him because of the desire they both feel for the adoption of the proposed government; the Massachusetts Convention met this day and elected John Hancock president and W[illiam] Cushing vice president; there will be opposition among the western delegates, and as their local circumstances are so closely related to Connecticut, ratification by that state will have great weight with them; he learns that the Connecticut Convention will postpone their determination until they hear from Massachusetts; urges them not to wait; the members from Maine are in opposition, fearing that ratification would preclude a separation from Massachusetts; the Boston delegation are all for adoption except [Samuel] Adams.
