About This Item

[Philadelphia, 1775. Folio broadside, 8" x 13-1/4". Old folds, several blank margin chips and light wear, else Very Good. Quakers were subject to much public obloquy in Pennsylvania for refusing to support the American Revolution. Signed in type by James Pemberton, Clerk of the Meeting, this broadside explains why Quakers have refrained "from joining with the public resolutions promoted and entred into by some of the people." The reason: Quakers are required to be "peaceable subjects, and to discountenance and avoid every measure tending to excite disaffection to the king, as supreme magistrate, or to the legal authority of his government... We are, therefore, incited by a sincere concern for the peace and welfare of our country, publicly to declare against every usurpation of power and authority, in opposition to the laws and government, and against all combinations, insurrections, conspiracies, and illegal assemblies." II Streeter Sale 766. Evans 14052. Hildeburn 3293. Sabin 94928. ESTC W28039.
