Benjamin FranklinThe King of France’s picture set with four hundred and eight diamonds, I give to my daughter Sarah Bache requesting however that she would not form any of those diamonds into ornaments either for herself or daughters and thereby introduce or countenance the expensive, vain, and useless fashion of wearing jewels in this country.
