From Benjamin Franklin to [the Comtesse de Golowkin], [before 1 February 1781?]

To [the Comtesse de Golowkin]

AL (draft): American Philosophical Society

[before February 1, 1781?]6

Mr. F. prie sa fidelle Interpréte de jetter ses beaux yeux sur ces ecrits allemandes, & de lui dire à la premiere rencontre, leur contenu7 en peu de mots.8

[Note numbering follows the Franklin Papers source.]

6We assign this date on the basis of BF’s Feb. 1 request, below, to return “the German Papers.”

7He first wrote “afin de lui dire à leur premiere rencontre le pourport” and then interlined his corrections.

8An undated note from the comtesse assures BF that she will see him on Sunday and will before then “rendre compte du contenû de ses lettres.” APS.
