TO GEORGE WASHINGTON.wash. mss.
New York, Jany. 14, 1788.
The Daily Advertiser of this date contains several important articles of information, which need only to be referred to. I inclose it, with a few other late papers. Neither French nor English packet is yet arrived; and the present weather would prevent their getting in if they should be on the Coast. I have heard nothing of consequence from Massachusetts since my last. The accounts from New Hampshire continue to be as favorable as could be wished. From South Carolina we get no material information. A letter from Georgia of the 25 of Decr. says that the Convention was getting together at Augusta and that everything wore a federal complexion.1 N. Carolina, it seems, has been so complaisant to Virginia as to postpone her Convention till July. We are without a Congress.
With perfect esteem & attachment I remain, Dear Sir Your Obedt. humble Servt.
