    [ This description is from the project: MHS 225th Anniversary ]

    This issue of The New-England Courant contains the earliest known published writing of a teenager named Benjamin Franklin. The MHS holds the only surviving copy. The Courant, Boston's third newspaper, was founded by Benjamin's brother James in 1721. Benjamin Franklin published a series of articles under the pseudonym Silence Dogood.
