September 15, 1787
Yesterday I was prevented by a severe Headache from attending in the Convention, and I am now setting off for Wilmington.
Some person mentioned to Me, that the Members were to give an Entertainment to the Gentlemen of the Town, from whom we have received Civilities. I therefore beg that You will apply the enclosed Bank bill for Me to that Use.
I am Sir
You sincere Friend
