Oh Franklin they're going great! The Pennsylvania Magazine is almost ready to be published.
This articles are brilliant. Just brilliant!
This political articles should be banished.
Oh that's great! People all over will be reading my pamphlet.
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.
With the help of Franklin's introduction, Paine soon landed a job as the editor of a new magazine.
Have you read these pamphlets?
I really love this pamphlet
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.
Paine found a publisher who agreed to print a thousand copies as a pamphlet. It was 46 pages long.
Did you hear about the idea of independence?
Hundreds of thousands of copies were in circulation throughout the colonies.
Of course! Who hasn't, they're everywhere.
I agree, I am such a fan
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.
Yes, I hear that a man named Paine from Philadelphia is coming here and he was the one who helped the movement for our independence
