This day our State convention is to meet in Boston for the purpose of assenting to
and ratifying, the federal Constitution. The members from this Town, went for Boston
yesterday, except Mr. Parsons, who will go to-morrow. The conjectures concerning the
issue of their debates, are different, according to the dispositions of the speculators.
Some think there will be a great majority for adopting the Constitution, while others
hope, the opposite party will greatly preponderate. In the evening I play'd with Mr.
Parsons at back-gammon, and was beat by him. After leaving the office, I pass'd the
remainder of the evening with Townsend, at Mrs. Hooper's.
