ALS : Mrs. Arthur Loeb, Philadelphia (1955) This short letter is tantalizingly uninformative. It touches on the two personal relationships that were in crisis when Franklin returned to America, with his son and with his oldest political ally; but it throws little light on either. Its contents make clear that it was in answer to a letter now missing, in which Galloway congratulated Franklin on...
ALS (draft): American Philosophical Society In my last per Falconer, I mention’d to you my showing your Plan of Union to Lords Chatham and Camden. I now hear that you had sent it to Lord Dartmouth. Lord Gower I believe alluded to it, when in the House he censur’d the Congress severely as first resolving to receive a Plan for Uniting the Colonies to the Mother Country, and afterwards rejecting...

AL (draft): American Philosophical Society I wrote to you on the 1st Inst. per Capt. Cook; acquainting you with the Dissolution of the Parliament since which the Elections are going on briskly every where for a new one.

ALS (letterbook draft): American Philosophical Society It is long since I have heard from you, tho’ I have written several Letters to you. There is great Expectation here of the Result of your appointed Congress, both among Friends and Enemies. If you declare and resolve your Rights, and confederate not to use British Manufactures till they are acknowledg’d and confirm’d here, you will...

Reprinted from William Temple Franklin, ed., Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Benjamin Franklin, L.L.D., F.R.S., &c. … (3 vols., 4to, London, 1817–18), II , 200 of first pagination. There is at present great quietness here, and no prospect that the war between the Turks and Russians will spread farther in Europe. The last harvest is allowed to have been generally plentiful in this country;...

Any Favors...
ALS (letterbook draft): Library of Congress I was in hopes the Acts passed at your Winter Session, particularly the Paper-money Act might have been presented so as to come under Consideration before the Recess of the Boards. But they have not yet made their Appearance. I had Thoughts of returning this Fall, but have now concluded to stay another Winter, thinking my being here may be of Use...
ALS (letterbook draft): Library of Congress I wrote to you of the 14th Feby. and 15th of March, since which I have receiv’d no Line from you. This just serves to cover a Sermon of my Friend the Bishop of St. Asaph. You will find it replete with very liberal Sentiments respecting America. I hope they will prevail here, and be the Foundation of a better Understanding between the two Countries....
