Permit me to to quote a few lines from Hugh Blair Grigsby's address on this Convention—the best account of it that we have—delivered before the Virginia Historical Society, December 15, 1853, and contained in the Virginia Historical Reporter for 1854 (Vol. I., pp. 81-83), a very rare pamphlet. Mr. Grigsby says: Although as the contests of the Convention the lines of division were strictly drawn between the friends and opponents of the old constitution, now that those strifes are past, and most of the active spirits of those exciting times are no more, it may not be inappropriate to class two names together, which, though never on the same side of the perpetually recurring call of the roll, were bound by the cords of Christian affection and were united in the support of all the reli

Madison Papers, i. 82. Mr. Hugh Blair Grigsby assures me that there can be no doubt that Washington wrote the above letter. Written by H. B. G., 30 May, 1867; very high authority.
