Publis, Did they consider a temporary constitution? One lasting long enough to pay off the war debts then to dissolve? I don’t remember ever reading it coming up.

What were the proposals short of this particular constitution? In know the Virginia plan, New Jersey plan, Connecticut compromise, etc. Were there others?

I would recommend two books to cover all this in detail.

Decision in Philadelphia: The Constitutional Convention of 1787, by Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier

The Summer of 1787: The Men Who Invented the Constitution, by David Stewart
