Thy favour of Captain All came safe to hand with the Silk in good Order, which merits my sincere Thanks. I shall always esteem myself much obliged by Doctor Franklin’s kindness, in taking so much Trouble as he has done in getting the Silk made. My Father has paid Neighbour Franklin the ballance on account of the Silk, agreeable to thy Order.10 I am very respectfully Thy assured Freind
