THE LETTERS

OF

A COUNTRYMAN.


WRITTEN BY


ROGER SHERMAN,


AND PRINTED IN


THE NEW HAVEN GAZETTE,


November-December,

1787.

NOTE.


In the file of The New Haven Gazette formerly owned by Simeon Baldwin, an intimate friend, and afterwards executor of Roger Sherman, it is noted by the former that the essays of A Countryman were written by the latter.

Following this series are two essays written by Sherman under a different signature, after the adoption of the Constitution, which are an interesting contrast to these. It will be noted in the first of these, that Sherman alludes to what he "had endeavored to show in a former piece."
