Description

Excerpt from The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Vol. 1: And a Sketch of Franklin's Life From the Point Where the Autobiography Ends, Drawn Chiefly From His Letters; From His Birth in 1706 to the Publication of the First Number of Poor Richard's Almanac in 1732 We have omitted the prefaces which separate the several parts of the work, and also one or two brief passages not adapted to school use. The original work is not divided into chapters, but we have inserted chapter headings at natural breaks in the narrative, for the convenience of readers. Occasional footnotes have been added where the text seemed to call for explanation or illustration, but no words have been explained which could be understood by reference to a good dictionary. At the close of the autobiography will be found a sketch of Franklin's life, from the point at which he leaves 03, to his death; and the Chronological Table which follows this Introductory Note will furnish further material for an historical study of this most interesting career.
