This chapter discusses promotional literature on Pennsylvania. William Penn and other English Quakers developed the first translingual project of promoting and settling a New World colony. Translation and multilingual dissemination became the central tools for constructing and representing this new settlement. In promoting Pennsylvania to religious radicals in Germany and Holland, Penn emphasized spiritual and linguistic utopianism in his promotional writings.
