Ben Franklin's weekends

Did Benjamin Franklin have a weekend schedule? Looking at his daily schedule
makes me curious as to whether he adhered to it seven days a week or if he did something different on Saturday and Sunday.

I've read that weekends weren't established for the working class in the US until the labor movement pushed for it in the 1800s, so I'm not sure if any Americans "practiced" weekends before then.
