70 miles to be exact!!!
William Penn’s heirs found an old deed from the Lenape indians that promised land starting from the Delaware River to “as far west as a man could walk in a day and a half.”
The sneaky devils then got the three fastest runners and had them “walk” for a day and a half so the Penn family could get as much land as possible. One guy covered 70 miles, resulting in 1,200,000 acres!!!!
Dayum!!! The Lenape must be soooooooo mad.
The’re probably casting crazy indian spells on that speed walker right now!
MMMmmmm, gurl!!! We do NOT like the sound of this!!
Quaker hippie William Penn, best known for founding the Province of Pennsylvania, has been struck with some nasty brain problem that has rendered him incapable of talking or taking care of himself. Since then his wifey, Hannah, is said to be signing important Pennsylvania documents on
the vegetable’s William Penn’s behalf.
Sooooooooo sketchy!!! If he can’t communicate what he wants, then it’s definitely illegal for her to sign things for him!!!!!
Do U think it’s okay that William Penn’s wifey is signing important documents without his permission??
Good! We like our little Pennsylvania hippie!!!
In 1691, new King William III took Pennsylvania away from founder William Penn because he was BFFs with the former king that he had overthrown, King James II. Convinced that William Penn was still loyal to the old king, he made Pennsylvania a royal colony and assigned military governor Captain Benjamin Fletcher to manage it.
The pacifist Quakers of Pennsylvania were horrified that their tax money would go to the war efforts against France and obstructed every initiative Benjamin Fletcher tried to start. Fed up, King William III has restored power back to William Penn who has worked very hard to assure KWIII he’s not loyal to the old king.
We COMPLETELY support the Quakers’ decision to boycott funding KWIII’s war with France. Especially after the witch trial madness, who wants more death and destruction???
Long live the hippies!!!!!
William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania, has mandated that for every five acres of trees cleared, one acre must be preserved.
Trees are pretty, give animals their homes, provide us with shade plus soooo many other good things!
We just want to give WP a big hug!!
Awww. This is adorbs!
The founder of Philadelphia, William Penn, invited the Lenape Indians to a little meeting. Penn just wanted to let them know that he and his peeps had come in peace and were advocates of civil and religious tolerance. They then exchanged presents and now everyone is BFFs.
So inspiring!!!If only EVERYONE treated the Indians with the same respect we’d all be better off.
Do UR part and hug an Indian today!!
Interesting choice of words!
William Penn has arrived in America after a two month voyage in which one-third of his fellow Quakers died from smallpox. He has since founded Philadelphia, or the city of “brotherly” love. The name derives from Greek, “philos” means loving and “adelphos” means brother.
Be proud of who you are, bb!!
In order to settle a debt King Charles II owed Penn’s father, he gave Quaker William Penn a HUGE chunk of American land. We hear Will is sailing to America now to visit his new gift.
What a moron!! We can’t believe he bought part of New Jersey before ever setting foot in America yet!! That’s like buying a pie shop but never having eaten a pie!!!!
What do U think William Penn will name his new land???
Thank God it’s not East Jersey or we’d lose the beautiful Jersey shore!!
William Penn, along with other Quakers, bought land now known as New West Jersey. New East Jersey still belongs to George Carteret.
Quakerism is a new religious fad sweeping the New World. Also known as the “Religious Society of Friends,” the Quakers believe in a direct and personal relationship with God, the refusal to bear arms and the refusal to bow to any man.
Our BIGGEST problem with the Quakers is their nickname “Religious Society of Friends.” Are they suggesting that Catholics, Jews and Protestants don’t have friends?????
PS: We SO approve of that faboosh red lip color on William
