Four Junto Questions [...]

The four questions that one had to answer to join Benjiman Franklin’s Junto:

1. Have you any particular disrespect to any present members? Answer. I have not.

2. Do you sincerely declare that you love mankind in general; of what profession or religion soever? Answ. I do.

3. Do you think any person ought to be harmed in his body, name or goods, for mere speculative opinions, or his external way of worship? Ans. No.

4. Do you love truth’s sake, and will you endeavour impartially to find and receive it yourself and communicate it to others? Answ. Yes.

The final three questions were borrowed largely from questions John Locke required for admission into his own society.[https://books.google.com/books?id=aWwUBAAAQBAJ&lpg=PA339&vq=answ.%20yes&pg=PA339#v=snippet&q=answ.%20yes&f=false cite]
