1921. Volume 8 of 50. The Chronicles of America Series is dedicated to presenting the main facts surrounding American history and the interesting historical stories behind civilization in America. In the present work, the Quaker Colonies contains a chronicle of the proprietors of the Delaware. This treatise discusses the birth of Pennsylvania, the beginnings of New Jersey and little Delaware.
The framing of the constitution and other preparations consumed the year following Penn's receipt of his charter in 1681. But at last, on August 30, 1682, he set sail in the ship Welcome, with about a hundred colonists. After a voyage of about six weeks, and the loss of thirty of their number by smallpox, they arrived in the Delaware.
