From Henry Laurens

ALS: Library of Congress; copy: University of South Carolina Library

London 10th. May 1784.

Dear Sir,

The 6th. Inst: I had the honor of addressing you by Post & availing myself of the encouragement you had given to hope for a supply of Money from Monsr. Grand on account of the United States, I requested that Gentleman by the same conveyance to remit to me the full value of One Thousand or twelve hundred Guineas which I repeat in order to guard against accidents as my affairs will not admit of delay.

I am presently to commence a journey to Bath with my Sister in Law, where I shall stay no longer than shall be necessary to see her settled, perhaps not more than eight & forty hours, then return here & take the first good opportunity for proceeding to America.

Inclosed with this are the Remarks which My Son inform’d me you wish’d to have,3 I think they are highly honour’d by your attention, the bearer Colo. Harmar does not leave London till Wednesday or Thursday next I have intreated him to take some of the latest News Papers for you.

With great Esteem & Respect I have the honor to be Dear sir Your obedient humble servant

Henry Laurens

His Excellency Benjamin Franklin Esquire Passy.
