It’s pretty amazing to see—the old parchment, the English language in a form almost unreadable declaring that William Penn could have the land that is now PA.
Neat facts–the colony of Pennsylvania was the first new world settlement privately owned. Not the King’s. King Charles II owed the Penn family 16,000 pounds (equivalent to $2M today) so he gave them the land in this new place across the ocean.
William Penn, Jr. was pleased with the deal because as a Quaker, he was looking to establish a place to worship freely without persecution. That was the foundation of Pennsylvania. And part of the reason we have so many municipalities. Everyone was welcome.
Notes: Reports of juveniles throwing rocks at cars. Reports of shots fired. One of the assaults was an attempt/cause serious bodily injury to teaching staff. There was a report of kids shooting at cars with BB guns in the same area as the previous weekend (18th & Market).
