JAY TO WILLIAM BINGHAM.
New York, 24 March, 1788.
Agreable to your request and my promise, I have now the pleasure of sending you herewith enclosed the first volume of the Fœderalist; as soon as the other is published it shall also be forwarded to you. The people of this State are turning their attention to the election of persons to represent them in the ensuing Convention; they continue much divided in sentiment respecting the proposed Constitution, and it is probable that these elections will be the most contested of any we have had since the Revolution. Be pleased to present Mrs. Jay’s and my compliments to Mrs. Bingham and believe me to be, dear sir, your affectionate and humble servant,
