The Silence Dogood letters written by Franklin were destroyed by Franklin's brother, who had been deceived by his younger brother in believing the letters had been authored by a widow named Silence Dogood. Upon learning of their true authorship, James Franklin became angry and burned the originals in protest. He could not, however, burn each and every copy of theCurrent, thus we have the original text of the letters, but not the originals themselves. In the film " National Treasure", it appears as if the originals are kept in The Franklin institute in Philadelphia, but a call to the Institute would confirm that, no, they do not have them.
Silence Dogood was a pseudonym of Benjamin Franklin's.
The Silence Dogood letters were written by a young Benjamin Franklin. The letters were written under the name Ms. Silence Dogood because prior to this time, 16 year old Benjamin Franklin was unable to get his work published.
"Silence Dogood" is a fictional character created by Benjamin Franklin who used this pseudonym to get his letters published in 1722 in the New England Courant newspaper . You can refer to the related link below to read 'her' letters .

The Original Silence Dogood letters are no longer extant, as Benjamin Franklin's brother , upon finding that they were, in fact, authored by his younger brother, burned them. He could not, however, burn each and every copy of the Currant, in which they were published. Thus, we have the actual text, but not the original hand written letters as produced by Benj Franklin
