At last the work of the convention drew to a close. The differences that arose as the various articles of the constitution were reported by each committee were finally adjusted and the proposed constitution was ready to be submitted to the house. Nearly six weeks had passed since the convention had assembled. Many acquaintances had been made, friendships formed, and associations enjoyed, and now this was the last day. The convention would pass into history, and many were never to meet again. We cannot do better than quote from the journal.
