Ben Franklin is returning to America...



Item # 645068

September 5, 1785

PENNSYLVANIA PACKET & DAILY ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, Sept. 5, 1785 

* Benjamin Franklin

A brief note from Paris mentions: "Mr. Franklin is on the point of returning to Philadelphia." and another item: "...from Paris...mention that the celebrated Dr. Franklin, a few days before, had taken his leave of the king and the royal family at Versailles & proposed immediately setting out for the port of Nantz from whence he was to embark for Philadelphia..." with more on him there (see).
The back page has a nice illustrated ad for a "Hat Manufacturer" which shows the classic tricorne (three corner) hat of the colonial period (see hyperlink).
Four pages, minor archival mend at the blank spine, very nice condition.
