Notes

In this section, Franklin meets with disappointment due to Governor Keith. The man does not stand up to his word, fails to set Franklin up in business, and even forgets to write his letters of recommendation to help him in London. Franklin, however, refuses to be discouraged. He finds a job and becomes successful, winning a good reputation for himself with his master and with his fellow workmen.

Franklin portrays the simplicity of his life in London. He pays a very small sum for his lodging and eats very simple foods, mostly vegetables, which are cheap. He drinks water rather than beer, which makes his fellow workers laugh at him. In spite of his simple life style, Franklin admits that he made some mistakes while in London. Franklin angers his boss by writing the pamphlet, behaves foolishly with Mrs. T, and loses his friend Ralph. By telling of his mistakes, Franklin makes himself appear more human.
