CONTENT DESCRIPTION
AbstractWoodbridge. No word from Franklin; has written him several times since his departure. Work he did in Philadelphia on the accounts. Samuel Smith of Burlington has been composing a history of New Jersey; has planned to go there and print it for him; intends sending Ben Mccom's printing materials there; will pay Franklin for them if he wishes it. Intends leaving the printing office and little post office at Woodbridge to his son. Hopes he will be able to pay off his debts before his death. Has had a smart attack of gout. Excessively cold winter; great poverty throughout the country. Question of his losing the comptroller's office, unless he moves to New York; reasons why he cannot live there; hopes the place of comptroller will not be taken from him; if it is unwilling to keep the post office at Woodbridge, as it does not pay him.
