At seventy years of age, Ben Franklin was the oldest delegate to Congress and an American celebrity. His active mind embraced many fields, and he made significant contributions in printing, publishing, authorship, science, and government service. He received honorary degrees from Harvard, Yale, William and Mary, St. Andrews (Scotland) and Oxford.
Benjamin Franklin and William Hunter, a Williamsburg printer, obtained royal appointments as Deputy Postmaster Generals for North America in 1753. The two men overhauled the postal system so that it reported a profit for the first time in its history. Franklin visited Williamsburg for several weeks in the spring of 1756, where he and Hunter were "daily employ'd in Settling our Affairs". In the same letter to his wife, Franklin continued, "About the End of the Week we are to take a Tour into the Country. Virginia is a pleasant Country, now in full Spring; the People extreamly obliging and polite."
