DEAR SIR, I have at length the pleasure to enclose you the favorable result of the Convention at Boston. The amendments are a blemish, but are in the least offensive form. The minority, also, is very disagreeably large, but the temper of it is some atonement. I am assured by Mr. King that the leaders of it, as well as the members of it in general, are in good humor, and will countenance no irregular opposition, there or elsewhere. The Convention of New Hampshire is now sitting. There seems to be no question that the issue there will add a seventh pillar, as the phrase now is, to the federal Temple.
With the greatest respect and attachment, I am, Dear Sir, yrs.
- James Madison
