Slightly SW of Elfreth's Alley. I can't think of anything near there offhand to find a link for it. Couldn't find it with a quick Google search.

Franklin Court 318 Market St. Looks like you can send something out at the only post office w/o a US flag and get it stamped as "B. Free Franklin". I never knew that! Apparently, they let you see the underground pit in the nearby Franklin museum! Too bad it's still not filled, lol.
