NY Ratification Convention Debates (July 14, 1788) - New York Daily Advertiser (July 17, 1788)

From Poughkeepsie we learn, that the Antifœderalists called for the final question on Monday last, but were overuled by a motion of Mr. Hamilton, seconded by Mr. G. Livingston, that the question be postponed till the next day, which was carried.
Next day, Mr. Hamilton brought forward a plan for ratification, nearly similar to that of Virginia, only containing more declarations. On this a considerable debate took place, and much of the old ground gone over, and the decision again postponed till the next day.
