On September 17, the group met one last time to conclude its business in Philadelphia, and to agree on how the Constitution would be sent to the Confederation Congress to start the ratification process with the states.

According to James Madison’s notes, the Constitution was first read to the group.

Franklin, in poor health at the age of 81, was at the meeting and wrote a speech to introduce the motion for the convention’s delegates to sign the Constitution. Too weak to read the speech, he asked James Wilson to read the speech for him to the other delegates.

“I confess that there are several parts of this Constitution which I do not at present approve, but I am not sure I shall never approve them,” the speech said in its opening sentence. Franklin then made a powerful argument for the new Constitution.
