My two last to you by Capt. Budden to London, and Capt. Stewart to Liverpoole,3 contained the first and second Copies of a Bill of Exchange for £100. Sterling, which I hope are come to hand and paid.

Inclosed you have now the first Copy of another Bill of Exchange for One Hundred Pounds more,4 of which with the others before sent, please to advise me, when you have got the Money. I am &c.


To Benjamin Franklin Esqr.

4According to Hall’s accounts of payments to BF in England (above, p. 236), this bill, later protested, was drawn by William Cooper of Boston and sent by the ship Betty-Sally, Capt. Edward Snead, which Pa. Gaz., Nov. 17, 1757, reported as cleared for London, but apparently her departure from the Delaware River was delayed long enough to receive this letter.
