The Letters of Fabius, in 1788, on the Federal Constitution; and
in 1797 on the Present Situation of Public Affairs.
From the office of the Delaware Gazette, Wilmington, by W. C. Smyth,
John Dickinson pens two series of letters under the pseudonym
"Fabius." The first series appears in 1788, to rally support
for the ratification of the new United States Constitution. In the second
series, written in 1797, Dickinson comments with alarm on the deteriorating
relations with France.
