POOR RICHARD'S ALMANAC.
Tie only complete collection of this
celebrated almanac., of which we hove
any knowledge, and beyond a doubt the
only one now in existence is in the pos
session of Mr. John Dogget, Jr., of this
city ; a gentleman generally known to
our community as the editor of :he City
Directory, and to a more limited class
of friends, as a most diligent and cul
It was about four years since Mr.
Dogeet commenced his researches for
these memorable records of Franklin's
learning, wisdom and wit ; and in pros
ec..tine them, he has visited most of the
p , ,blic literary institutions of the coun

respondence besides. He has now nee
complete set, commencing with the
year 1733, and continuing until Frank
connection with it terminated in
1758, abort twenty.five years.
About eight years ago, Mr. Sparks,
in his life of Franklin, referring to this
almanac says: It is believe' that a
co it ,lete e lition of Poor Richard's .ill
munac is not now in existence. After
much research I have not been able to
find more than one third of the numbers
that were published." .
The maxims arid smtitnents of Poor
Richard, which, of course, constitute
the supreme attraction of his almanacs,
are printed in italics down the columns
of the calender, in the vacant spaces
not occupied by calender matter, some•
times one word and sometimes more on
a line, and not unfrequently a single
sentiment of six words running down a
The following is the first of these gol
den sentences, which we sought with
some curiosity in the first almanac of
" Never spare the parson's wine nor
she baker's pudding."
We have already alluded to the won
derful popularity of these thoughts of
Poor Richard, a popularity which will
be readily comprehended by those who
are familiar with the wonderful wisdom,
sagacity and wit, which the author has
compressed in his brief and simple sen
tences. So many years have elapsed

we feel we shall oblige many of our
readers by selecting from among them
some which have been leai.t hackneyed
