The Objections of the Hon. George Mason

George Mason would not sign the U.S. Constitution because it did not contain a Bill of Rights.  

He set-forth the reasons for his objections, as depicted in this text image, in a document called The Objections of the Hon. George Mason, to the Proposed Federal Constitution.  It is included in Elliot's Debates, at pages 494 - 496.
