NOTES

[1] Logan: James Logan, a statesman, and secretary to William Penn, was born at Lurgan, on the 20th October, 1674. His parents were members of the Society of Friends. He became Chief Justice of the State of Pennsylvania, Provincial Secretary, and Commissioner of Property, and for nearly two years governed the Province as President of the Council. He visited England in 1710, where he successfully vindicated himself from charges brought against him by a faction in the Assembly. He did not retire from public life until about 1747. Thenceforward, living in dignified leisure at Stenton, near Germantown, he devoted himself to literature, translated Cicero, and penned those scientific papers which will be found appended to his Memoirs. Some of his works were printed by his friend Benjamin Franklin. He died at Stenton, 31st October, 1751, and was interred in the Friends' burial ground, Arch-street, Philadelphia.
