After his return from England, Franklin had organized his ten most intelligent friends into a "Club for  mutual Improvement" called the "Junto." Each member in turn was required to lead a discussion on  morals, politics, or natural philosophy, and to write an essay every three months. The club had firm  rules against members abrasively contradicting each other, and against anything that might create  personal antagonisms.
