I htink that B.F. was a very interesting person. I was doing a homework assingment for history and ended up getting abrobed into his experiments and life. My parent had to make me stop doing homework! THAT has never happened before, and probably never will again(unless I do a report on him again.)

Sara Seymour , 10-31-91 Palmer Ma. 01069 [09-19-2001]

I use a Franklin Planner daily, I like history, philosopy, math, science, and practical solutions to social problems. I think Ben Franklin was one of America's greatest assets, and one that continues to pay dividends. If he were alive today he would love the internet, perhaps he would have invented it, so it is appropriate to have a website dedicated to him. Thanks for sharing.

Ben Franklin was a truly Anerican original that showed the Europeans what the New World was capable of producing along the lines of tecnology, science and patriotism... He gave a semblance of solidity to a rather uncertain, insecure group of men in search of their destiny.
Julio C. Silva , 70, retired journaist, Sarasota, FL [08-29-2001]

It's nice to know there really is actual information out there, and not just "entertainment"

It was quite helpful for my assignment
Ally Smith [07-01-2001]

Too bad Philip Syng, Jr., Thomas Hopkinson, and Ebenezer Kinnersley who worked with Franklin on the electric experiments are never mentioned today. An indication of how closely they worked together, the signiture of silversmith Philip Syng (maker of the Independence Hall inkstand, an electric generator and a motor) can be found just below Ben's on the charters of the Fire, Insurance, and Library Company, the University, Hospital, Miltia, and Philosophical Society, etc. I hope someday to find my 5x great grandfather's papers so that I may better help the unsung Syng get his just due.
J. Del Conner , Philadelphia, artist [06-28-2001]

HELP!! This is a wonderful resource; however, I need some help. I'm researching BF's 13 Virtues. I found them listed in the "Electric Franklin's" Quotables, but there are only twelve listed with "silence" listed twice. I need the thirteen. Can you help me? Where did you find them!?! Thanks so much! Sharla Moody

john, 14 [03-15-2001]

I think that Benjamin Franklin is a very good aspect of what the people of today should really be looking up to. Benjamin Franklin achieved a lot in his time, probably more than most of the people. With his life as a scientist to his life as an inventor I believe that he has made a huge impact on the life today. Although he invented many things that do not necessarily apply to me, other I think appreciate his discoveries. Such things as the lightning rod and the furnace stove established certain insurance's. The lightning rod established protection for ships and buildings. The furnace stove warmed the homes of many individuals in his time period. Now we have taken these inventions to a little bit of a higher level. I believe with out these inventions and his scientific analogies we would probably be living different life styles. I know that I would not want to live with out his inventions, and I bet you would not want to either!

The William Temple Franklin diary piece is fantastic. My son read it and recommended it too me -- I am glad he did. The part where Benjamin tells young William he is his grandfather is stellar work.

the page about franklin as seen through a diary was fascinating. i had no idea franklin got so angry about the british.
Tony Stefano [01-20-2001]

Ugh! I hate your site. everytime I come here trying to get help with my homework, I end up spending like 2 hours reading stuff instead. Instead of doing my social studies homework I read almost all of that journal about billy franklin. is it a book or something so at least I can use it for a book report?
Caitlyn [01-20-2001]

Last summer my dad made me take a tour of philadelphia on a trolley and the guide said ben franklin walked up market street there when he came over from boston. well let me tell you I couldn't have cared less. But I think the journal about his sort-of-grandson Billy is cool because of the way you talk about their journeys and stuff. please post some more.
willa, age 14, Princeton, NJ [01-20-2001]

the story of ben Franklin in diary form blew me away! i laughed at the part about Phialdelphia being a sleepy little town because i live there!
Edward Simms, age 12, from Philadelphia [01-20-2001]

I didn't think it was appropriate to use the term bast-rd in your journal of William Temple Franklin. A lot of children probably visit your site and that is not appropriate language. Otherwise, I would have recommended that journal for my students.
Ruth Oshop [01-20-2001]

can you please send me some information about how to write historical journals. I would like to start one on Mrs. Margaret Stevenson -- it could go with your william temple franklin one. reading that was really fun and I want to write like that too.
naomi jagger, Sweet Sutherland, TX [01-20-2001]

Hello! Your william temple journal isn't even a year long yet. Why did you stop the installments? When can I read the next one!
raymond, 34, Bangor [01-20-2001]

I like to read historical novels and I liked your story about william temple franklin. It is rare when writers know how to put in the really good details -- like where you describe playing with tame squirrels and the thrill of a package of apples, cranberries and bacon. How funny.
Elisabeth, age 16 [01-20-2001]

Those pictures in the "through the eyes of young franklin" journal are really cool. I like how the writing sounds really old too - the way they talked back then, I gues.
jason, no other info for you. [01-20-2001]

I never got passed the beginning of Ben Franklin's biography that they assigned at school. But I loved your story about his grandson. How much of that is real, anyway?

Nick, age:9 [01-20-2001]

I am amazed at the seemingly unique confluence of men with vision who lived,wrote, and worked toward the founding of what at the time was an incredibly risky venture- a democratic republic. The documents and structure that they created, after much discussion, disagreement, and compromise are works of men with faith and vision.What a period to have been alive!
