1558. CONGRESS, Non-attendance.—[further continued] .

We have only nine
States present, eight of which are represented
by two members each and, of course, on all
great questions not only an unanimity of
States but of members is necessary, an unanimity
which can never be obtained on a matter
of any importance. The consequence is
that we are wasting our time and labor in vain
efforts to do business. Nothing less than the
presence of thirteen States, represented by
an odd number of delegates, will enable us
to get forward a single capital point.—
To George Washington. Ford ed., iii, 420.
(A. 1784)
