ALS (letterbook draft): American Philosophical Society I have just received two of your Favours of July 26. requiring my Attention to the several Acts of your Assembly passed the last Session, and Endeavours to obtain the Royal Approbation of them. This Instruction I shall most certainly observe, and it will be a great pleasure to me if I meet with the Success you wish. I hope to receive by...
ALS : Yale University Library; draft: American Philosophical Society I received the Honour of yours, dated July 5. relating to the Act for establishing the Division Line. It was by a Letter from J. Kinsey, and J. P. Hewlings Esqrs. that I was directed to solicit the Royal Confirmation of that Act: Accordingly when it was obtain’d I sent the two authenticated Copies to those Gentlemen; one by...
ALS (letterbook draft): American Philosophical Society I received your Favour of May 26. and am much oblig’d by your kind Invitation to your House, which I should certainly accept with Pleasure, if I should ever go to Carolina. You wish me to correspond with you on publick Affairs. Those relating to America have been and still continue in so disagreable a Situation, that I cannot write upon...
ALS : American Philosophical Society; draft copy: British Museum This letter carries on the story begun in Cooper’s earlier one above, August 15, of the collapse of royal authority in Massachusetts. But, as with his description of the crisis that culminated in the Tea Party, the chronology is confused; and in the confusion the principal developments are obscured. Outside Boston, as the King’s...
ALS : Yale University Library The Bearer Mr. Ralph Westley, goes to Pennsylvania to look out a proper Tract of good Land, on which to settle some able Norfolk Farmers, who are about to remove thither with their Families. One of whom, Mr. Foulger, is a Relation of mine. As the Farmers of that Country are reckoned the most skilful in England, and the comfortable Settling of these first...
ALS : American Philosophical Society It is now nine long Months since I received a Line from my dear Debby. I have supposed it owing to your continual Expectation of my Return; I have feared that some Indisposition had rendered you unable to write; I have imagined any thing rather than admit a Supposition that your kind Attention towards me was abated. And yet when so many other old Friends...

ALS : Public Record Office I received, last week only, your Favour of June 27. and I have received no other from you since that of April 30. You complain of hearing seldom from me, and yet I have written oftener this Year than ever before. I apprehend our Letters are intercepted. I hope you have received mine of June 1. for in that you will find the Dates of many of the Letters I had written...
LS : American Philosophical Society This odd letter seems to be Franklin’s only contact with a noted French philosophe. Le Mercier de la Rivière (1720–93) had been a councilor at the Parlement of Paris, intendant at Martinique, guest of Catherine the Great to advise her on a new legal code for Russia, and popularizer of Quesnay’s economic doctrines. The accession of Louis XVI in May, 1774, and...
ALS : American Philosophical Society Votre lettre du 10e. août m’a penetré l’ame du plus delicieux sentiment, en me montrant de quelle façon la mienne du 28e juillet vous avoit affecté. C’est un nouvel aiguillon pour me presser d’executer mon projet d’un petit voyage à Londres; cependant ma grande affaire n’est point encore terminée, peutetre le sera t’elle sous huit jours, peutetre durera...
