Although he was his father, Franklin always had a difficult relationship with Abraham. This was because Abraham was absent for much of his life, out hunting hollows (though Franklin thought they were regular business and hunting trips, etc). While drinking at the pub, Franklin tells Jacob that he thinks Abe went on these trips to deal with the pressure of having to be a father, but not knowing how. He also tells Jacob that "even when he wasaround, it was like he wasn't."
