MR. WILLIE JONES’ RESIGNATION AS A DEPUTY TO THE CONVENTION.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Warrenton, February 4th, 1787.

Dr. Sir,

I received your favor informing me that I was appointed to go to Philadelphia on the subject of revising the Confederation.

I think it will not be in my power to attend there at the Time appointed, and therefore must Request that you will appoint some person in my place as a matter of so much importance must necessarily require the fullest Representation.

I am with Respect Dr. Sir,
Your Most Obedient Servant,
WILLIE JONES.
