From Benjamin Franklin to Benjamin and Elizabeth West, [before 4 April 1772?]: résumé

To Benjamin and Elizabeth West

AL: Yale University Library

<Before April 4, [1772?2], and in the third person. An invitation to dinner next Saturday, April 4.>

[Note numbering follows the Franklin Papers source.]

2Between the artist’s marriage and BF’s return to America, April 4 fell on a Saturday in 1767 and 1772. Our predecessors did not print the invitation under the earlier date, and we are therefore assigning it to the later one.
