Opis: Biographical Sketch of William Penn - Hayes A. L.

Excerpt from Biographical Sketch of William Penn: The Founder of Pennsylvania
The great men of every nation, whether sages, warriors, lawgivers, artists, or authors, may be regarded as the landmarks of its history. Their characters are among its invaluable treasures; and as they pass away, each furnishing his contribution to the universal fund of moral and intellectual wealth, they enlarge the circle of benefactions to mankind by leaving imperishable examples of virtue. For the rich legacy of their fame, surviving generations, in bestowing the meed of praise which is due, but magnify their own possessions. To commemorate and defend their memory, is the interest, as well as the duty, of those who come after them.
Of all the titles to veneration of the great and good, who are distinguished in the world's annals as national benefactors, none, in my judgment, is so lofty and honorable, (next to that of the Father of his country,) as in the phrase of Lord Bacon, the conditor imperiorum, the Founder of a State. No other is so identified with the glory of his country, even when his personal history is involved in myth and fable, like that of Romulus, the Founder of Rome, or Lycurgus, of Lacedmon.
In modern history, the title has been, it may be said, exclusively bestowed upon the subject of this sketch, the illustrious William Penn. In the origin of every political society, there have been some one or more prominent men, whose preeminence is conceded. So in the settlement of the provinces that now compose this great confederated Union; in all of which, it were easy to point out the leading spirits of the respective communities, who gave them their form and pressure, and shaped their special destiny.
