Benjamin Franklin Papers

From Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Digges, 12 July 1779

To Thomas Digges

Copy: Library of Congress

Passy July 12 1779.

Dear Sir

Your Bill on Mr. Grand2 will be paid. I am much obliged by your kind Letters, and pray you to continue them. I find it an Endless and fruitless Business to consider and give Opinions upon Propositions of Peace, drawn up by Persons who have no authority to treat. I hope You will therefore excuse my Silence on yours.3 I can at present only thank you.— We are in daily Expectation of important News.

With great Esteem, I am &c.

M Digges.
