Benjamin Franklin Papers

To Benjamin Franklin from James Parker, 6–7 October 1769: résumé

From James Parker

ALS: American Philosophical Society

[New York, October 6–7, 1769. Sent the Post Office account book with his letter of October 5. Confined to his room and can barely sit up. Has not touched Benjamin Mecom’s books,1 but will as soon as he is able to stir——if he ever is. Postscript of Sept. (i.e., Oct.) 7: encloses originals of Hubbart’s two bills, of which seconds went by his letter of October 5–9.]
