What Would Satisfy the Americans?

Doctor Franklin, being in England in the Year 1775 was asked by a Nobleman, what would satisfy the Americans? Answered, That it might easily be comprised in a few Re’s

Which he immediately wrote on a piece of Paper Thus,

Re
call your Forces,
store Castle William,
pair the Damage done to Boston,
peal your unconstitutional Acts,
nounce your pretentions to Tax us,
fund the duties you have extorted; after this
quire, and
ceive payment for the destroyed Tea, with the voluntary
grants of the Colonies, And then
joice in a happy
conciliation.
