Oh Franklin they're going great! The Pennsylvania Magazine is almost ready to be published.
His articles are brilliant. Just brilliant!
The political articles should be banished.
Excuse me Paine may I have a moment of your time? I heard you were in need of a publisher and I am offering to print a thousand copies of your pamphlet
Oh thats great people all over will be reading my pamphlet.
With the help of Franklin's introduction, Paine soon landed the job as an editor for a new magazine.
Of coarse who hasn't they're everywhere
Have you read these pamphlets
I really love these pamphlets.
His articles criticized British officials and colonial rule. These stories did not please the Loyalist citizens of Philadelphia, who favored strong ties to Great Britain. On the other hand they did appeal to readers with Patriot sympathies.
I've been thinking, having independence would be a good change for us.
Yea I agree
Paine found a publisher who agreed to print a thousand copies as a pamphlet. It was 46 pages long.
Yea, I read Paine's pamphlet and it really opened my mind.
Did you read the pamphlet Paine, in Philadelphia wrote on independence?
Hundreds of thousands of copies were in circulation throughout the colonies.
It helped many colonists see independence as a real possibility.
Paine's ideas on rights and liberty also had an influence on other countries, particularly France.
