Good Book, connections
Also, in 1848, John Quincy Adams died, in the House of Representatives where he was serving.
Re-read Gordon S. Wood's "The Americanization of Benjamin Franklin". Focused work on the transforming periods of Franklin's life and the moments of transformation of our collective national awareness of BF and of ourselves. A recommended book, although in his telling of the reactions to Franklin's death, he leaves out the attendance of some 20,000 people in Philadelphia.
- in other news - Got word that the 20+ brochures arrived at my Shoreline PTA contact's house and she will distribute to the PTA Council on Monday. Networking, a very good thing. What would Franklin do? Network.:-) More anon, Robin.
