Fisher, Sydney George: "The true Benjamin Franklin"
Philadelphia : J. B. Lippincott company | ISBN: n/a | 1903 | PDF | 442 Pages | 28 MB
Since the appearance of the first edition there has been some discussion of the question whether Mrs. Foxcroft was really Franklin's daughter. In the present edition I have added an appendix going fully into this question. Franklin's plain language about love and marriage and his very frank descriptions of his own short-comings in these matters seem to have surprised many people. I might have explained this more fully in the first edition, but to any one who knows the age in which Franklin lived there is nothing that need cause surprise.
