From James Madison
[Richmond, June 30, 1788]1
Inclosed is the final result of our conventional deliberations. The intended address of the minority proved to be of a nature apprehended by me.2 It was rejected by the party themselves when proposed to them, and produced an auspicious conclusion to the business. As I shall set out in a few days for N. York, I postpone further explanations. I have this instant the communications from N. Hampshire, via Poughkepsy;3 also your two favors of the 19 & 20.
