To me it seems to be the garden of America. Their oxen are strong to labour and there seems to be no complaining in their streets...the soil is good, the land exceedingly fruitful, and there is a greater equality between the poor and rich than can perhaps be found in any other place in the known world.

One great reason, I believe, why Pennsylvania flourishes above other provinces, is the liberty of conscience which is given all to worship God in their own way.
