B. Free Franklin Frank
Benjamin Franklin to Mrs. Hopkinson, 1766


London May 9, 1766

My Dear Madam,

          I received your Favour of Oct. 1 with the order on Mr. Barclay, of which I have not yet made any Use, but shall when I next see him; Tho’ it was not necessary for you to take Notice of those small expences ‘till my return. ~ Your Acknowledgments are far beyond Expression and bring me in your debt. I had a pleasure in the Success of my Endeavours, that sufficiently repaid me for the little Trouble they gave me. Pray present my Respects for your new Son-in-law Dr. Morgan, whose letters I have receiv’d but cannot now write to him. I thank him for his Book, which is well spoken of here. I congratulate him and you on his marriage, and wish for you and your whole Family all Sorts of Prosperity. Being with sincerest Esteem and Respect,

                                Dear Madam,
                                Your affectionate Friend,
                                & most obedient humble
                                          B Franklin
