"January 17, 1956 marks the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Franklin, the founder of The Library Company of Philadelphia. This keepsake is issued by the Library Company as its tribute to the memory of Franklin. It is being sent to its shareholders and friends to remind them that Franklin built the foundation of his many-sided career on books; he wrote them, printed them, sold them, and as founder, director, secretary and librarian of the Library Company made them available to others for their common use and for the benefit of the society in which he lived."--Leaf inserted.
