Transcription

London, April 14, 1767 Sir, I received your Favour of Jan. 16, with the Copy of your Report to Sir William Johnson and one Letter of later Date, all which I communi- cated to Lord Shelbourne. I delivered him also your Letter that was directed to him. – I wish more Attention was paid here to what is recommended by People acquainted with America & particularly that more could be expected in consequence of your Representations; but ‘till our Ministry feels itself a little better settled, and has more time to spare from defending itself to think of such distant Objects, I doubt little will be done. – You have doubtless rendered great Service to Government by your Negotiations among the Indians. I take every Opportunity of mentioning it, and I hope you may in time obtain some suitable Reward. I thank you heartily for the Information and Entertainment I received by reading your Journals, and am, with great Regard, Sir, your most obedient humble Servant B Franklin
