Anecdote by Benjamin Franklin

In conversing with Dr. Franklin on the subject of the constitution, after it was published, the Doctor said to N. W. that he had agreed to the form of the constitution, although it had always been his opinion that the legislative body should consist of one house only. But said the Doctor, "I have all my life been changing my opinions on many subjects and in this case I have yielded my opinions to those of other men."
