This is the second holograph draft of the Constitution by James Wilson, delegate to the Constitutional Convention from York, PA, and chair of the Committee of Detail. This was the committee charged to draft the Constitution. This version of the Constitution consists of six sheets. This draft, like the first, lists each state separately in the first line.
