Dear Sir

I shewed the inclosed last night, after I saw you, to Mr. B.4 who highly approves of the Way in which I have stated the Matter, which he says is precisely as it ought to be. I hope you will therefore let me have your Answer as soon as you conveniently can. I am Ever Your most obedient

3Aside from the fact that Nov. 22, during BF’s second British mission, fell on a Wednesday only in 1769, this was obviously a covering note for the preceding document.

4Probably William Bollan, agent for the Massachusetts Council.
