The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin


Read Franklin's autobiography. Surprisingly similar to the biography I read, which apparently heavily used it as source.

Thomas Jefferson very much admired Franklin, although given Jefferson's need for fine wine and French cooking, and Franklin's basic meals of water and biskets, their perspectives on food was different. Personally I think I fall more on the Franklin side, but I could do better on frugality.
