It was moved by Mr Randolph seconded by Mr Patterson that the House adjourn.
And then the House adjourned till to-morrow at 11 o’clock.
Mr. Patterson, observed to the Convention that it was the wish of several deputations, particularly that of N. Jersey, that further time might be allowed them to contemplate the plan reported from the Committee of the Whole, and to digest one purely federal, and contradistinguished from the reported plan. He said they hoped to have such an one ready by tomorrow to be laid before the Convention: and the Convention adjourned that leisure might be given for the purpose.1
Met pursuant to adjournment. Present 11 States.
Mr. Patterson moved that the further consideration of the report be postponed until to-morrow, as he intended to give in principles to form a federal system of government materially different from the system now under consideration. Postponement agreed to.
Adjourned until to-morrow morning.
