Seven months after arriving in Philadelphia, Franklin met the Pennsylvania governor,  William Keith. Keith liked Franklin and promised to help him start his own printing shop.  Franklin returned to Boston to ask his father for a loan to get started, but Josiah refused.  Back in Philadelphia, Governor Keith told Franklin to go to London, where he could buy  the supplies he would need. Keith would provide the credit. With this promise, Franklin  sailed on November 5. He arrived in London on Christmas Eve, 1724, only to learn that  Keith had not kept his promise. With no credit and no money of his own, Franklin could  not even afford to return to Philadelphia. Franklin was unfazed. He soon found a job Samuel Palmer's printing shop in London,  where in February of 1725 he helped print an edition of William Wollaston's  Religion of  Nature Delineated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
