United States--History--Revolution, 1775-1783; Jay, John, 1745-1829
Has just returned to the city from Elizabeth and discovered to his dismay
that the convention will be meeting in White Plains, following a scheme of Gouverneur
Morris. Worried about what the public will think. The prosecution of Governor TryonÆs
plot delayed. Fears enemies will cast them in a bad light because of it. Resolve passed,
giving certain powers to the generals. Wanted Philip Livingston to stay longer, but he
left for Philadelphia. Dispirited and out of patience.
