Pour M. Franklin

Une Rame de Papier même Grandeur de ce ci—mais sans etre coupé et sans etre Gommé: enfin, propre pour imprimer dessus, et de la meme Espece qu’on vend aux Imprimeurs pour cet Effet—7

Addressed: M. Cabaret, Md de Papier / au Griffon, / Rue de Bussy / fbg St. Germains

[Note numbering follows the Franklin Papers source.]

7An undated answer from Cabaret, signed “Votre Md de papier”, asked WTF for clarification. Should the sheets be full size, or cut according to what Cabaret had previously supplied? He would fill the order the following day. APS. Cabaret’s bill for the period June 6 through July 26, 1782 (APS) indicates that on June 6 the stationer supplied a ream of “grand papier” for printing, at a cost of 9 l.t.

WTF’s stationery order of July 26 is also at the APS. It requests ink, pens, and a bone folder.
