Benjamin Franklin Papers

To Benjamin Franklin from Samuel Vaughan, Jr., 13 February 1783

From Samuel Vaughan, Jr.

AL: American Philosophical Society

Thursday 13 Feby. [1783] Hotel de Vauban,
Rue de Richlieu.

Mr Vaughan presents his most respectful compliments to Dr Franklin, & will do himself the honor of accepting his kind invitation to dinner on Sunday next: Mr Vaughan would have done himself the pleasure of sending an earlier answer, but having changed his abode, Dr Franklin’s obliging note came late to hand. If any letters should be laying at Dr Frankins for Miss Laurens, & he had an opportunity of sending them to Town tomorrow, Mr V would be particularly thankful, as Mr Storer sets off for London in the evening.1

Addressed: A son Excellence, / Monsieur Franklin, / Ministre Plenipotentiare des Etats Unis &c &c, / a Passy.

Notation: Vaughan

1The following day, Feb. 14, JA wrote letters of introduction for Charles Storer, his secretary (XXXVIII, 285n), to Benjamin Vaughan and Richard Oswald in London, and to Edmund Jenings (saying that Storer would look for him in Brussels). Eleven days later Benjamin Vaughan replied that Storer had arrived. Adams Papers, XIV, 260–2, 295.
