Imprint lacks date; attributed here to the Richmond press of John Dixon based on his use of the diphthong "œ" in spelling the word "fœderal" – a feature that was unique to his imprints on the constitutional debate. Contains essays signed "An American Citizen" [Tench Coxe] and "Centinel" [Samuel Bryan], speeches by James Wilson and Benjamin Franklin. a letter from Richard Henry Lee, and the objections of Elbridge Gerry.
