Cornelius Bom's 1685 Missive

Above is a the title page of our ancestor Cornelius Bom's 1685 pamphlet published in Dutch giving an attractive account of life in their new home in Pennsylvania. This pamphlet, along with others published in German, French, and English, were widely distributed through the Low Countries and Germany to attract settlers to this new land.
