Life Of Benjamin Franklin: Footnote 57

Dr. Gordon, who had imbibed the prejudices of a party against Dr. Franklin, as is obvious in various parts of his History, omits in quoting this passage, the clause, —"you may trust him,"— and also, —"his hopes are as sanguine as my own, of the triumph of liberty in America." —GORDON'S History, 1st ed., Vol. I. p.434.
