NON-ARBUCKLE USAGE

PENNSYLVANIA
Post Card



Size: 3" x 5"
Copyrighted: 1908
Lithographer: R. M. Donaldson

(NOTE: Just to the right of the R. M. Donaldson copyright line, mostly obliterated by the dark brown bar,
is an identical copyright by American Lithographic Co., N.Y., perhaps indicating that the card was
originally printed by American Lithographic and then overprinted by Donaldson.)

(NOTE2: Although the large portrait certainly appears to depict Benjamin Franklin, he doesn't even get a mention in the caption.)

WILLIAM PENN: born in England, 1644; died there, 1718; became a preacher of the Friends in 1668; received the grant of
Pennsylvania, 1681; came to America in 1682 and founded Philadelphia; deprived of the government of Pennsylvania in 1692 on
the suspicion of intriguing to restore James II, but was restored two years later.
