William Strahan was an old printing friend of Franklins.

Dear Friend:

I wrote you some time since to acquaint you with my Arrival, and the kind Reception I met with from my old and many new Friends...

My dear Love to Mrs. Stahan, and bid her be well for all our sakes. Remember me affectionately to Rachey and my little Wife, and to your promising Sons, my young Friends Billy, George and Andrew. God bless you and let me find you well and happy when I come again to England; happy England! My Respects to Mr. Johnson; I hope he has got the Armonica in order before this time, and that Rachey plays daily with more and more Boldness and Grace, to the absolute charming of all her Acquaintance....
