I too like an was a good friend of Mark Biddle's and worked together in the 80's to secure funding for the Stevensen home in London. I am currently working on a story that involves William and his father and was wondering if Ms Claude Lopez could contact me. I would welcome her thoughts on their estrangement. BTW - this is a wonderful site. I wish more history could be as engaging. Merry Christmas all!

I am young but I do more about Franklin then some adults do. Benjamin was a gift of light for America. Without him and help of some others we would not be able to say were free. Such a great man. I wish he was still allive he would bring so much no inventions to us. -Kyle

I was intrigued by the 8 x 8 Franklin Square referred to in Dan Brown's book "Lost Symbol". I would like to know the veracity of what is said in Dan Brown's book.

I am in fifth grade and am doing a living portrait of BF as part of my grade. I am to dress like him and be him as parents and visitors hear the story of Ben's life. He is more complex than I ever knew.

I loved the website. My sister learned how to play checkers from the game here. I loved the quotes page because I have a school assignment on his quotes. The word search and slider games we couldn't get to come up. But a great site.

Fascinating! Information that I had not previously come by or that I'd forgotten over the years. It's also nice to find such information formatted for comprehension by the general public as well as good fun to read for academics!

I just found this web site! It is wonderful! I have always been fasinated by Benjamin Franklin. I am very curious to know, however, why his son's middle name is Temple as that is my last name. I do the family genealogy, but have not come across any connection to my family. Was William Temple named after a friend, a relative, or is it religious in nature? I had many Sir William Temple ancestors in England. If anyone knows the story behind it, I surely would like to hear from you.
Sherry Ann Temple, 47, Arkville, New York [12-30-2009] »»»

Benjamin Franklin should live in all of us. He was the quintessential American: inventive and pragmatic; dynamic and sedentary; he had an appreciation for the finer things, but was content with average things. Franklin was worldly and not insular. He, perhaps more than Washington, was the 'father of our country'.

If it wasn't for Benjamin Franklin who knows where this world would be. If ben had never been involved with the things he did i believe no one would have discover elecrticity, biofacls, and his quotes.

Very inspiring a man of so many talents but very humble and always looked out for the rebels fighting for freedom and justice thinking about the next generation as well. He was not bitter about women but pushed them for bringing out the best in them like Liberty Prescott.

Thank you for sharing all of this information online. Ben Franklin was a fascinating man who added much to our culture in words and deeds. I am doing an online project for a course, and Ben's proverbs are the centerpiece for it. Huzzah for finding this Web site, and having a rich body of information from which to choose for my lesson plan/unit. Again, thanks!

Your site is very informative and I have enjoyed it very much. Thank you for putting it together. I'm looking for a quote from Ben Franklin that has to do with his opinion of goverment taxing it's people more than ____% I read the quote when I was in grade school, but cannot find it. It went something like this: Ill is a government that taxes its people more than ____ percent... I want to know what the figure is where I have the underscore, and how that quote is actually worded. Can you help? Thanking you in advance
