31. Cumberland Gazette, 18 October 1787

Mr. WAIT, Your Gazettes of October 4 and 11, present to our view two things which I think must be agreeable to every honest and unfettered mind. I mean the result of the Grand Convention—which I hope will be established by the unanimous consent of the people;1 and the observations of an able hand, upon the cursed effects of priest-craft, when in alliance with tyrannical government. As our good Lord hath begun, by enlightening our minds, so may he perfect our deliverance from the power of this monstrous beast.

1. The Constitution was printed in its entirety in the Gazette’s issue of 4 October.
