Read this excerpt from Franklin's Autobiography and answer the question that follows.

1)Walking down again toward the river, and, looking in the faces of people, I met a young Quaker man, whose countenance I lik'd, and, accosting him, requested he would tell me where a stranger could get lodging. 2)We were then near the sign of the Three Mariners. 3)"Here," says he, "is one place that entertains strangers, but it is not a reputable house; if thee wilt walk with me, I'll show thee a better." 4)He brought me to the Crooked Billet in Water-street. 5)Here I got a dinner; and, while I was eating it, several sly questions were asked me, as it seemed to be suspected from my youth and appearance, that I might be some runaway.
