On the 9th of November, a stone was planted on the spot at Chester where William Penn first set his foot on American soil, and three trees were planted around it by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and the Penn Club of Philadelphia. Mr. Lloyd Smith, a lineal descendant of Wm. Penn, planted an American Linden ; Mr. Justice Cox, a descendant of the interpreter between Penn and the Indians planted an Elm - and Mr. Samuel Chew, a descendant of the famous Chief Justice of Pennsylvania, planted an American Ash. The trees were all raised from Pennsylvania seed - the Elm being of old Philadelphia parentage.
