A. L. S. 2 pp. 4o
Description
Acknowledges letter of Feb. 18th and a pamphlet; the act for restraining trade ought to convince Americans that they have been deceived by assurances that their combination would cause the English people to make a change in administration to comply with American demands; the body of the people are united on the present measures with respect to America; if Franklin, who is doubtless employed by the opposition, should prevail on the Americans to stand out, he will only increase their distress; if this senseless confederacy should hold until another session of parliament, the members would be so incensed that their first act would be an exclusion of Americans from the fishing banks; the letters of the New England men will confirm his statements of the general sense of the kingdom, for they have expressed home their surprise at finding it so different from what they conceived.
