5 When Benjamin Franklin succeeded in establishing his own admired newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, and then became the Pennsylvania government’s printer and the postmaster of Philadelphia, he was well on his way to having a significant monopoly over the circulation of news (and thus 28 Carla Mulford of culture) in the middle colonies of North America at precisely the time when intellectual and mercantile commercial power shifted away from the port cities of Boston, Massachusetts, and Newport, Rhode Island, to Philadelphia.
As he had in the past, Franklin turned to anonymously published literary journalism to make his views known to the general population. 25 On one side of this two-sided news sheet, he presented a purported letter from a Capt. Samuel Gerrish about scalps the British troops had acquired from Indians who slew colonists. On the other, he offered a hoax letter supposedly written by John Paul Jones to Sir Joseph Yorke, Britain’s ambassador to the State General (the Netherlands). Both satires evince Franklin’s rhetorical skill of satirical inversion, where the tables are turned on the aggressors, their transgressions exposed.
Franklin’s “Ibrahim” concluded that too many problems would emerge were the Christian slaves freed. His conclusions were strikingly reminiscent of the contentions employed by Congress in defense of the slave trade: What would become of the freed slaves? Who would be the laborers in the fields and homes? How would Americans make money? Who would protect Americans from the freed slaves’ thieving? Who would train them in a foundational education and in religion? Aren’t slaves safer in the enslaved condition than they would be if set free and turned loose in a world where they would be unwelcome?
