Description
Gov. Hancock has been confined to his chamber since the Convention met; his health will probably improve enough for him to attend as soon as a majority shows on one side or the other; Gerry attempted to speak in the course of a debate, and was hindered by Dana; Gerry intends to write a complaint to the Convention; this may show a true division of the house for the first time; cannot conjecture the final result, but he rather thinks they will ratify, perhaps recommending to the delegates certain alterations; the Constitution is immensely popular in this town.
