Abstract:

Benjamin Franklin enjoyed great popularity within the United States, and his common sense, wit and charm earned him many friends and admirers abroad. Nowhere was this more evident than France, the country where Franklin served as ambassador from 1776 to 1785. In Paris, he presented himself as a rustic New World genius, often dressing in simple "frontier" clothing and wearing a fur cap. This book, published in France in 1795, collects some of Franklin's more popular writings. While most of its contents are in English, a portion of the book is written in French.
