The Managers of the Pennsylvania Hospital to
Franklin, David Barclay, and John Fothergill
Minutebook copy: Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia
<January 18, 1773: A copy of their previous letter is enclosed.5 They have now drawn further on Franklin, Barclay, and Fothergill for £1,250 sterling in three bills of exchange, one in favor of Joseph Mitchell for £600 and two in favor of Joseph King6 for £300 and £350 respectively.>
5. Presumably that of Jan. 4 above.
6. For the little we know about Joseph King see above, XIX, 367 n. About Joseph Mitchell, a new mortgager, we know nothing; he may or may not have been the man of that name who wrote BF in 1788 about other land transactions, and signed himself “a Decriped being this many years.” 1 Pa. Arch., XI, 253–5.
