Franklin's final draft of his last speech in the Federal Convention for forming the Constitution of the United States of America, addressed to "D. Carrol [sic], Esq."

Carrol Esqr. / Endorsed: D Carrol Draft of Franklin's last Speech in the Convention for forming the Constitution of the United States, September, 1787."
