A Penny Saved

One of the most quoted Franklin saying, as in this Letter to the Editor: A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned.

In Poor Richard, 1937, I find this:

A Penny sav’d is Twopence clear, A Pin a day is a Groat a Year.

followed by

Save and have. Every little makes a mickle.

In this case, maybe time has smoothed this nugget of wisdom.
