AL (draft ): Library of Congress I received your Favour by Capt. de la Plaigne, and in consequence of your Recommendation have assisted him with Money, and recommended him to honest Merchants here, who have furnish’d him with Goods that you ordered.

I congratulate you...
ALS (letterbook draft): Library of Congress I hope you continue well tho’ I have not had the Pleasure of hearing from you since your Favour of Jan. 13. The Seeds I sent you last Year were not as you supposed from that Mr. Ellis who had been your Governor, but from another of the Name, Author of the enclos’d Pamphlet. I now send you a few more East India Seeds which I had from another Quarter....
ALS : Mrs. Craig Barrow, Wormsloe, Savannah, Ga. (1961) In my last I acquainted you with the Change of Ministry in the American Department, as then expected.

Inclos’d I send you a small Quantity of Upland Rice...
ALS : Buffalo and Erie Public Library On my late Return from the Country I found your Favour of March 18. which had been left by Mr. Stephens. I have not since seen him, but shall be glad of any Opportunity of serving him on your Recommendation. I see by the Papers that your new Assembly is dissolved. I am concern’d at the uncomfortable Train your public Affairs have lately taken, but hope it...
AL (letterbook draft; incomplete): American Philosophical Society I was in Ireland when your respected Favour of July 8. arrived at my House here.

I hoped the Petition relating to the controverted Lands would...

ALS (conclusion only): National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution <No place or date, but endorsed “B. Franklin Esq. March or Apl. 1771.” Asks the recipient to accept “a few Seeds from India, that I am told are of curious and useful Plants, and likely to thrive in your Country.” > This phrase and the endorsement give grounds for supposing that Jones may have been the...

ALS : Bibliothèque Municipale de Nantes I wrote to you sometime since that I had receiv’d your Orders to procure a Mace and Gowns suitable for your Assembly, and that I hoped to have them ready to go by this Ship.

ALS : State Historical Society of Wisconsin Your Favour of Feb. 21. was duly delivered to me by Mr. Preston. I immediately bespoke the Mace agreable to your Orders, and was assured it should be work’d upon with Diligence, so that I hope to have it ready to send with the Gowns by a Ship that I understand goes directly to Georgia sometime next Month. By the Estimation of the Jeweller who...
ALS : New York State Library, Albany I did myself the Honour of Writing to you on the 3d. of the last Month, since when the Parliament has risen without repealing the Duties that have been so generally complain’d of.
