Quote from the Constitutional Convention:
"I just have a few thoughts to leave with the delegates. In my estimation, one of the important things of this Convention is to prove to the United States, to the Congress, that we are politically mature. I think they are looking at that very thing... I would like to have everyone to consider the effects that the inclusion of anything in our Constitution may have in regard to statehood. "
-Delegate John C. Boswell, Day 69 of the Constitutional Convention
