Well, at the Constitutional Convention...he wasn't there. He was actually abroad as a diplomat. However, he was in the Continental Congress, and there (and if he'd been at the Convention) he represented Massachusetts.

During the American Constitutional Convention that formally began its proceedings in 1787, the smallest state (in terms of land-area) represented was Delaware. Rhode Island, the smallest state of the 'Original 13,' declined to send delegates to the Convention.

12 states went to the Constitutional Convention (also known as the Federal Convention, the Philadelphia Convention, the First Constitutional Convention, and the Constitutional Convention of 1787). Rhode Island didn't send delegates because it opposed any revision of the Articles of Confederation and it did not believe the national government had the right to interfere in the affairs of a state.All the states expect Rhode Island were represented at the constitutional convention. Because it had been self governed for over 140 years. And the state was reluctant to give up power to a central government.
