WILLIAM BINGHAM TO JAY.
Philadelphia, Jan. 29, 1788.
I have seen various detached numbers of a periodical publication under the title of the Federalist, which have much pleased me, as the author has treated the subject in a strong masterly manner.
I have heard that it is about to be republished in the form of a pamphlet, in which case I shall be much indebted to you for a copy.
The opposition to the new Government in this State, which was confined to a few factious characters, is daily growing weaker, and it is evident little impression has been made in favor of their views, by all their laborious productions.
The friends to the Federal Constitution are much alarmed at a report that your Legislature are averse to calling a Convention of the people, to ratify it.
I am happy to find that a Minister has arrived from the Court of Versailles and that he has brought several of his family. If they can be reconciled to our simple Republican manners, they may prove valuable accessions to your society at New York.
Mrs. Bingham joins me in respectful compliments to Mrs. Jay. Believe me to be with sincere esteem,
