Copies of 13 letters written by Henry Benbridge from Rome, London, and Charleston, South Carolina, and one written to him by his step-father Thomas Gordon from Philadelphia. From London, Benbridge reported on visits with Benjamin West and Benjamin Franklin and his plans to show some of his portraits at an upcoming exhibition. In one letter, Benbridge discussed West's intention to do history paintings rather than portraits, and his hopes that this would open a place for him in the portrait market. Benbridge believed he could make as good as living in America as in London, for although he could not charge as much per painting, nevertheless, the cost of living in America was lower. Over half the letters are addressed to his sister Elizabeth Saltar and were written from Charleston, chiefly after the American Revolution. These letters contain family news and discussed the exchange of plants, but several times he mentioned that he stayed busy with painting commissions. In one letter, Benbridge asked his sister's help to forestall Mrs. Sage, his son Harry's grandmother, from spoiling the boy while he was living in Philadelphia with her
