Book Description:
PREFATORY NOTE. The collection of Franklin Papers in the possession of the University of Pennsylvania, amounting in all to eight hundred and forty pieces, was purchased through friends of the Uni. versity in 1903. Besides the papers the collection also contains a number of broadsides and pamphlets that belonged to Benjamin Franklin. The papers were first calendared by Mr. A. C. Boggess at the time a student in the Graduate School of the University but in order to make the Calendar conform to the plan adopted by Dr. Hays, it was necessary to revise and greatly to modify the work. This was done by Mrs. Lightner Witmer, whose valuable experience in calendaring the Weedon, Lee and Greene Papers and a large portion of the Franklin Collection of the American Philosophical Society, enabled her to carry out the task in a most satisfactory manner and in a comparatively short time. The University is under obligations to the American Philo sophical Society for permission to publish this portion of the Calendar in separate form, and to Mr. Joseph G. Rosengarten for offering with his usual generosity to defray the cost of these reprints, of which five hundred copies have been issued. MORRIS JASTROW, JR., Librarian. UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA, December, 1908. CONTENTS TABLE OF ABBREVIATIONS vii LETTERS TO BENJAMIN FRANKLIN 399474 LETTERS FROM BENJAMIN FRANKLIN 475 479 MISCELLANEOUS LETTERS 480 570 INDEX 511 546
