I had the Happiness to...

ALS : American Philosophical Society I wrote you a long Letter of the 8th and 29th of March on various Subjects, too long to copy unless it should be lost. But as Messrs. Coxe are sending Copies of their Request and Power to you, I must repeat so much of my Letter as related thereto. [Here Franklin copied verbatim the long paragraph which formed the largest part of the postscript dated March...
