In 1732, Franklin arrived in Philadelphia as a run-away apprentice, alone and friendless, but returning there 62 years later, he was greeted with a cheering crowd, bells, and cannons, as a statesman, author, and scientist, and one of the leading figures of the American Revolution. Illus. with art of the era.
