Benjamin Franklin Papers

To Benjamin Franklin from Jonathan Shipley, 25 January [1772–75?]: résumé

From Jonathan Shipley

AL: American Philosophical Society

<Jermyn Street, January 25, [1772–75?7], in the third person and the Bishop’s hand. Invites Franklin to dinner tomorrow.>

[Note numbering follows the Franklin Papers source.]

7BF’s acquaintance with the Bishop of St. Asaph and his family began, as far as we know, in the summer of 1771; we are therefore assigning this invitation to what seems to be the earliest likely date.
