Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788421964, Paperback)

The Journal of Exiles gives a short description of the banishment of the citizens of Philadelphia, who were sent to Virginia, at the beginning of the war of the American Revolution, and then remanded by Congress to Pennsylvania until they were discharged.

This work provides a general account of the Society of Friends, who maintained the Journal, and describes the peculiar situation they found themselves in because of the general Resolutions of Congress, respecting the war. It was from these Resolutions that the Orders of the Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania were deemed legitimate and they were able to direct the arrest of the Friends, and make arrangements for their exile. Additional information added to the Journal includes observations of the Society of Friends pertaining to the treatment of its members, and a defense against the charges made respecting their political conduct. The Appendix contains copies of the Minutes of the Congress, and of the Executive Council of PA, arranged in order corresponding with the Journal. This work is accentuated by facsimile reproductions of letters in the original handwriting of George Washington, an obituary memorial for William Penn, and a new fullname index. (1848) reprint, 5.5 x 8.5, append., index, paper, 310 pp.
