701. New York Journal, 11 February 1788

A variety of letters are received in this city from Boston, which convey private opinions of the several writers: some of these affirm, that the majority is decided IN FAVOR, and others AGAINST the adoption of the constitution. Thus, the one positively contradicting what the other declares for fact, their insertion would be a mere nullity. As last Tuesday, or Wednesday, at farthest, the grand question was to be decided, the next Wednesday’s post will doubtless forward us the important result.
