5Neither “your Letter” nor “the other Letters” have been identified. Either these papers or the inquiry about “the House at Philadelphia” in the next sentence, or both, may have related to the power of attorney “from my Friend Collinson” that BF sent to Joseph Galloway on June 18, 1767; above, p. 191.
