According to Sturrock, "It is impossible for an autobiographer not to be autobiographical. . "15 Sturrock ingeniously solves the problem by defining it out of existence—it is the nature of autobiography to be authoritative.

More important, the Declaration is itself a form of communal autobiography. 4 Because Congress suppressed what John Adams referred to as Jefferson's "vehement philippic against negro slavery," the official document commits a serious hypocrisy that later (black) slave narratives would endeavor to expose and correct. This collective American autobiography called forth a subgenre that would amend the original document by, in effect, restoring the missing philippic. Slave narrative was in this sense evoked— or provoked—by a master text whose comprehensiveness and moral authority it questioned.

Caught up in complex political and family conflicts, Franklin's attitude on authority was inconsistent.
