Benjamin Franklin Papers

To Benjamin Franklin from William Knox, 29 January 1771

From William Knox

ALS: American Philosophical Society

New Street Hanover Square 29 Jany 1771


Inclosed I send you the Plan of the Lands in Georgia claimed by Sir Wm. Bakers Representatives which you desired in your Letter which was delivered to me yesterday.6 I also inclose the several Papers which came with it to my hands as I imagine they may contain some information which you may think useful. I have kept no Copies of them, neither would I give you the trouble of makeing any, for the originals never can be of any use to me, and Copies would be a still more unnecessary incumbrance. I am Sir your very obedient humble Servant

Will: Knox

Endorsed: Letter to W Knox Esqr  In Answer
