In Philadelphia, about 1 740, the Quakers were a third of the population ; in
Pennsylvania, one-half. This denomination gave great promise in the earlier
years of its history. It was far more tolerant than the age ; it discovered that a paid
priesthood is not indispensable ; it perceived the utter stupidity of such wars as

British occupation of Philadelphia, 1777 to 1778, Galloway assisted the
occupational government and then moved to England as spokesman for loyalists
in the colonies.

IN. PHILADELPHIA. Franklin was twenty-two years old when he began business
with Meredith. They had no capital, and in fact were in debt for part of their
appurtenances. Meredith proved not only incompetent, but a hard drinker as well;
