Convicts who are confined there, but should the latter appear more Eligible, you will then
consider whether it is not necessary to Instruct the Senators and Representatives of the
Commonwealth to make application to Congress as soon as one is formed ­

the State, I shall while I am honor'd by the people with the Office of Com[m]ander in Chief do
all within my power to render it as little burthensome to them as possible. To keep the Garrison

I Submit it to your Consideration whether you will instruct your Senators and
Representatives to attend to the obtaining Amendments in the Constitution of the United

You will recollect that when that System was ratified by the Convention of
this Commonwealth it was done on the Idea that Amendments should be finally effected. The
