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