] ] ] 1- What does it mean "to be franked"? Is it a tip or a present?
I think I knew it had to do with that but it is used so oddly in this diary I am reading. The diary is of a Parson Woodforde and he says on a journey to Bath , two young gentlemen on their way home from school join the coach and ride on top.
They all dine together at the Inn and then he franks them.
So I guess he paid for their letters. Seems odd to do that for someone you just meet. I guess it would be a little kindness or gift in that respect. Anyway--------thank you!
