AL : American Philosophical Society This brief undated note, Carey’s first extant letter to Franklin and the only one we know that either man sent the other during the year Carey lived in France and worked for Franklin as a printer, has bedeviled the editors of these papers since we first considered publishing it in Volume 31. The dating of this letter hinges on when Carey was actually in...

Whether I shall be able to steer the A.M. thro’ the surrounding difficulties, remains yet a matter of doubt with me. If it be at all...
In the bitterness and anguish of my soul, I sit down to exculpate myself from the charge contained in your excellency’s letter of the 31st ult. Though I have read it several times over, I cannot, owing to some ambiguity in the expression, tell whether you were offended with my returning your letter—with the contents of mine—or whether the latter was not broken open, and handed to your...

Whether the boy who takes care of the mail, and to whose care the letter was delivered, wilfully tore off the cover, or by carrying it in his pocket, let it be worn off,...
