763. Winchester Virginia Gazette, 22 February 1788

By a gentleman just arrived from Philadelphia, we learn, that before he left that city, General Sinclair arrived there from New-York, with the agreeable intelligence that Congress had received official accounts of the Convention of Massachusetts having ratified the Federal Constitution, by a great majority. He further informs, that the like intelligence had been received from Georgia, and officially communicated by Congress to the Executive of Pennsylvania.

A Richmond paper of the 4th inst. mentions, that a letter had been received in that city from New-York, which says, that the State of Massachusetts had rejected the proposed Federal government, by a small majority.
