Philad. June 7. 1764.

Dear W Strahan

I receiv'd your Favour per Capt.

Walker, which I shall answer fully per

Hammet, who sails in about ten Days.

I think I am slighted lately per Mr

Becket. Pray enquire & tell me the

Reason, that if I have been in fault

I may amend. -------

I left some Receipts with you

for Subscription Monies to Books. I

wish you to enquire about them, parti-

cularly Stewart's Athens.

My Love to Mrs Strahan and your

Family. I am, Dear Friend,

Yours affectionately

B Franklin

We are all well, and

as happy as other Folks

for the present

[Verso]

To

Mr Wm Strahan
