Inscription text: William Penn's Treaty with the Indians. This Justly Celebrated Treaty, was Formed in the Year 1682; Under the Large Elm at Shackamaxon, now Kensington, Philadelphia How beautiful the scene portrayed above, A treaty, framed in Justice, Truth and Love! Our City's Founder and the peaceful "Friends" Stoop to no subterfuge, to gain their ends; While with unswerving confidence, around Their Indian brethren occupy the ground. This incident, a maxim may afford, And prove our PENN was "mightier than the sword."
