Descrizione
In this volume Franklin is representing the Pennsylvania Assembly in London, meeting with limited success before the Privy Council over the question of the Proprietor's alleged fraud in Indian lands and with complete reversal over an issue of parliamentary privilege. The personal antagonism between him and Proprietor Thomas Penn develops into an angry break. His personal success, however, is extensive. He travels widely, looking up ancestors and surviving relatives; he receives local honors in Edinburgh and Glasgow and an honorary degree from the University of St. Andrews, becoming "Doctor Franklin." He enjoys scientific and intellectual associations with members of the Royal Society, and warm and delightful friendships with people he meets on his travels as well as in London.
