TO ANTHONY BENEZET
London, 14 July, 1773.
I received your favor of April 24th with the pamphlets, for which I thank you. I am glad to hear that such humane sentiments prevail so much more generally than heretofore; that there is reason to hope our colonies may in time get clear of a practice that disgraces them, and, without producing any equivalent benefit, is dangerous to their very existence.
I hope ere long to have the pleasure of seeing you, and conversing with you more fully on that and other subjects than I can now do by writing.
In the meantime, believe me ever, dear friend,
Yours most affectionately,
