The Debates in the
Federal Convention of 1787
Mr. PATTERSON, observed to the
Convention that it was the wish of several deputations, particularly that of N.
Jersey, that further time might be allowed them to contemplate the plan reported
from the Committee of the Whole, and to digest one purely federal, and
contradistinguished from the reported plan. He said they hoped to have such an
one ready by tomorrow to be laid before the Convention: And the Convention
adjourned that leisure might be given for the purpose.
