John Dickinson to George Read

September 15, 1787

Dear Sir,

Yesterday I was prevented by a severe Headache from attending in the Convention, and I am now setting off for Wilmington.

Some person mentioned to Me, that the Members were to give an Entertainment to the Gentlemen of the Town, from whom we have received Civilities. I therefore beg that You will apply the enclosed Bank bill for Me to that Use.

I am Sir

You sincere Friend

John Dickinson
