This pamphlet contains a brief biography of William Penn, plus extracts from several of Penn's political writings, with a brief commentary by the editor, a Penn scholar. Included are: 1. a section of the transcript of Penn's 1670 trial in which he argues for religious toleration on the basis of liberty of conscience, and extracts from 2. his First Frame of Government for the Colony of Pennsylvania and 3. his Plan for a Union of the Colonies, and almost all of 4. An Essay Towards the Peace of Europe. They demonstrate Penn's very progressive thinking for that age.
