Journal Notes of the Massachusetts Ratification Convention Proceedings (January 21, 1788)

Mr. DANA once thought it dangerous and unnecessary; is now convinced to the contrary 1. The representation is to proceed directly from the people—the people ought to be equally represented, and have equal influence—remarks on Rhode Island—there must be a power—
Mr. COOLEY states any objection unnecessary because the rights of the people are secured by oath.
Mr. PARSONS.
Dr. TAYLOR.
Mr. PARSONS, in reply.
Mr. KING. Distinct ideas of time, place and manner—pursues Ames's ideas of trusting the legislatures of the other States—corporate representation not the same as by numbers—the present situation of Connecticut—South Carolina—Charleston sends thirty and given districts send given numbers of representatives, without regard to the number electors—the controlling power therefore, is necessary.
