Benjamin Franklin Papers

To Benjamin Franklin from Arthur Lee, 3 March 1778

From Arthur Lee3

AL: American Philosophical Society

Challiot March 3d. 1778.

Mr. A. Lee’s respect to Dr. Franklin. As it is probable the Evening will be dark and bad, which together with the badness of the road at this season will render it very inconvenient for Dr. Franklin to go from Challiot in the Evening; Mr. Lee woud prefer postponing the meeting till to-morrow at Passi.

Mr. L. begs the favor of Dr. F. to send him the Committees Letters by Mr. Austin. There were Duplicates by Capt. Jones. They are in a Bundle together so that young Mr. F. may easily find them.4

Addressed: The Honble / Benjamin Franklin Esq / Passi

Notation: A Lee to BF. March 3. 78.

[Note numbering follows the Franklin Papers source.]

3In answer to BF’s note of the day before.

4WTF obliged; see our note on the following letter.
