Newspaper Report of Pennsylvania Convention Proceedings (December 11, 1787)

Yesterday Mr. Wilson replied, in the forenoon and afternoon, in a summary way to every objection that had been Made in the Convention to the new Constitution. His arguments were strong and irresistible in favor of the government. He proved it, to the satisfaction of everyone (the leaders of the minority only excepted), to be a wise, safe, and free one. He showed the excellencies and perfections of each of its parts and thereby increased the confidence and attachment of all who heard him to it.
