Mr. Chambers’s Compliments to Mr. Franklin and being disapointed of the pleasure of meeting him at the Philadelphia Coffee House to day desires the favour of him to send to send [sic] his Letters by the Bearer; as being to set out for Portsmouth early tomorrow morning he fears it will be out of his power to wait upon before that time.

5So dated because in the following July (below, p. 332) Isaac Norris indicated that BF had recommended “Mr. Chambers” in a letter of April 14, 1761 (not found).
