Excerpt from William Penn in America: Or an Account of His Life From the Time He Received the Grant of Pennsylvania in 1681, Until His Final Return to England
Although several biographies have appeared re specting the Founder of Pennsylvania, the author believes that there is still room for another; relating to that particular portion of his life which he spent in the Province: commencing with his first application for the grant until his final return to England, extend ing through a period of more than twenty years. Within this time transpired the most important events by which he will continue to be best known. Judging by the little space given hitherto to these matters would go to show that there must have been either inattention, or a paucity of materials. Though his several biographers have written with different motives, but not one with a view of enlarging upon the details of his residence in America.
