101. Propriety
Massachusetts Centinel, 29 December 1787

Mr. RUSSELL, I was well pleased with the hints of a correspondent in the Centinel of Wednesday, respecting the accommodation of the Convention, believe them to be timely, and unless a place is determined upon for the reception of that body, previous to its meeting, their business will be protracted, for, if they think of any particular Church, they must apply to the officers of it—those officers I presume, must call a parish meeting, and this will be attended with some delay.—It is generally allowed that the Rev. Mr. Thacher’s Meeting-House is the most eligible one, and it will appear more so when it is considered, that the deliberations of the Hon. Convention will be less liable to be disturbed there, by carriages, &c. than at almost any other place.
