THE MASSACHUSETTS CENTINEL, Boston, Massachusetts, April 12, 1788 Page 2 has an item from England which reflects some concern for the future of slavery (see). A report from York, Pennsylvania, notes: "...there is scarcely a dissenting voice from here to the city. We are all in favour of the Constitution..." with a bit more (see).
