libertycalled dr franklin a fraud and a bluehound library philosophy college almanacs all very funny but my money is worthless anymore i am tired of this war and ben franklin as much as any man started us down this path To ruin, dear mother, as my long journey ends and I near doctor franklin's philadelphia, I feel more and more restless, though I deeply believe that I am where I belong, the pain of leaving you and my father so recently, I have to admit it's hard to bear.
I'm embarrassed to say it but I feel so lonely mmm what about my friends here what will james moses and henry think of me now i'm probably a dumb girl who keeps changing her mind about who moses really is oh slow down james prices go on being so tall moses i don't see how we can moses sarah uh hi sarah sarah what why because i finally realized something i realized i'm an american welcome home well about time isn't it james i feel so wonderful even you you can't ruin it what hey, aren't you glad to see me?
I have a lot to tell you about john paul jones and england and mother and parliament and two ocean voyages with the worst food i've ever eaten and hmm where's henry i? I thought that's it. Stop. take it back Never. You're a liar. I won't stop it. i'm not ok if it's working stop it now how did this start when charles said bad things about dr franklin i said take it back or i won't so i taught him a lesson he will never forget ja he doesn't charles is entitled to his own opinion , even if you disagree, yes, but that's part of being free, haven't you learned anything from moses and dr franklin? first, but you're wrong about Dr.
Franklin. He didn't stop screaming. Why do you think Dr. Franklin is a fraud and a braggart? Don't know. My dad told me I want to show you something. Look around. In a way, he is right with me. It used to be junk until Dr. Franklin got it. Did you know that Ben Franklin is an inventor? Not Moses. Play for him. play for me Please, cease. an invention of dr franklin called the glass harmonica watch glass bowls of different sizes rotate together when i turn the crank and when i touch the rim of one of the bowls thank you kindly moses tell him about this do you know what this key did charles uh opening the door to the crown jewels not exactly but opening another door to a new world of electricity it was in 1752 when dr franklin was 46 years old as soon as any of the thunder clouds come over the kite the spiked wire will draw fire electric from them when the rain has wet the string so you can conduct the electric fire freely you will find it comes out copiously from the key as you get close to your knuckle we have sparks so first of all in case you don't I think Dr Franklin is a brave man.
The next man who tried the same experiment died and what a discovery Dr. Franklin made. As we learn to control those sparks we will be able to use their energy to power boats or drive horseless carriages or even help with cooking charles dr franklin once tried like many scientific experiments it didn't work right it was two days before christmas dr franklin i was hosting a dinner party i have a stove franklin did not like to see an animal suffer needlessly and i hope i use electricity to end its life painlessly are you fine oh yes perfectly fine i want to try that yes absolutely no electricity can be very dangerous james parents died in a fire caused by a thunderstorm to prevent a fire caused by lightning ben invented this lightning rod with ben's new device attached to the ceiling lightning was attracted to the tip of the rod electricity traveled down a copper wire down to the ground of course at ben's house he sent the charge through an apparatus that rang some small bells in a big storm the bells could ring for hours i want to invent things like dr franklin one day i too wish i had a fancy upbringing like he had fancy upbringing let me tell you about ben's fancy upbringing what kind of lies are you filling my son's head with come here charles it's not lies sir he would like to hear for himself.
I insist on listening for myself so I can be sure to correct them. the case dr franklin grew up in boston right across from old south church in a packed house with 12 brothers and sisters ben was overwhelmed to learn that his family could no longer afford to send him to class he was about nine years old this father his father put him to work in the family business making candles ben spent the money he earned on his best love books ben franklin did not have a fancy upbringing charles ben franklin taught himself his family borrows company books of philadelphia libraries charles of course founded ben franklin along with the american philosophical society the union fire company the university of philadelphia and hospital of pennsylvania charles have you ever had the misfortune to be sick or hurt ever the child he is strong like his father they are both lucky and if they lived in the days before dr franklin founded that hospital being healthy would have made you even luckier many poor sick and insane were reduced to wandering the streets of philadelphia it was a situation terrible now in the hospital in pennsylvania there is a place for the sick just as important people began to learn how to be doctors this terrible war gave them the opportunity to learn first hand about the human body seeking to alleviate the terrible suffering that they have brought to the battlefields there they have faced every injury and illness you can imagine and more thanks to Our Doctor's Newfound Expertise People are healing from illnesses and injuries in ways that were never possible before Mr.
Montgomery. Have you ever read Dr. Franklin's poor Richard's almanac? Dr. Franklin published the first edition of poor Richard's almanac when he was 26 years old. all the usual weather reports recipes and predictions what set him apart were the lively writing and witty sayings a penny saved is a penny earned no gain no pain an enlightened fool is dumber than an ignoramus he who lies with dogs will be raised with fleas library philosophy university almanacs all very funny but my money is worthless anymore i am tired of this war and ben franklin as much as any man started us on this road to ruin mr montgomery you have to understand where is dr franklin the deep commitment to freedom comes from him wrote in 1717 my brother james returned from england with a printing press and letters to set up his business in boston i signed for dentures when i was only 12 to serve as an apprentice for the next nine years of my life presenting the number of this new england current week with the latest column from mrs. them to the temple of learning as far as harvard is concerned it's not that funny it's very funny ok i would love to know who this sharp tongued lady really is james me and lady hush do well i've been writing that column and swiping it under the door in the middle of the night watching everyone laugh at my words but never being able to take credit for them do you know how that feels james became more and more abusive towards his 17 year old brother you're not done yet i'm not I don't want to be here all night.
I hurry. I hurry. Moron. You did it on purpose. It was an accident. I don't believe you and I'm tired of your disrespect. the harsh and tyrannical treatment of his brother, mr. montgomery, that's where dr franklin got that aversion to arbitrary power that has rubbed off on me all my life, it's also one of the reasons he has taken such a strong position anti slavery slavery is the economic foundation of our southern states and many of us in the north have also profited from slave labor with all due respect sir whoever freed you made a mistake you said i admit you have strong points about benjamin franklin you are entitled to your opinion on slavery sir though why do you say you would deny me mine where is charles where is my son and where is on reed careful i can't control it sarah i hardly get to hear you tell me about your journey moses thank you sir i'm glad you are free man, you're welcome and i hope one day you'll say that to an african man who not only saved your son's life, dear james, sarah and henry, i know you wish you could see me, but however you can, i'll describe myself to you. me in your mind as gay as before and as strong and vigorous only a few years older dressed very simply with my fine straight gray hair peeking out from under my fine fur cap think how this must appear among the powdered heads of Paris still they were crowding me in the name of the british clown it would be very good night i don't think so blues ben franklin at your service dr franklin what a surprise welcome to versailles a man my age is happy to be welcome anywhere but i tell you this there have been strangers as big as any of the most famous, yet my dear friends, if you didn't want to be forgotten as soon as you're dead and rotten, write things worth reading or do things worth writing and
children, I'm pretty sure that they will
