"The third paper published in Boston, and the fourth to be continuously published in this country. To evade the order of the Legislature which forbade his printing anything except it was first supervised by the Secretary of the province, the Courant was published after 1723 in the name of Benjamin Franklin, then an apprentice to his brother James, probably until its publication ceased in the year 1726." cf.
