THE CONVICT SHIP WILL NEVER AGAIN BE SEEN IN PHILADELPHIA
Your opportunity to visit is NOW. If you do not seize it yours will be the regret at not having seen the greatest
and most extraordinary exhibition that ever visited your city. When you walk her decks, grooved with the chains of her
miserable victims, the past will speak to you its sad and mournful lesson, but you will leave feeling better, because you
live in a better age. Wealthy Americans spend millions annually visiting in Europe old castles and their prison dungeons.
Today a five-cent cartare brings you alongside the oldest and most notorious lloating prison the world has ever known.
Do not miss this profound illustration of the most vital factors in the betterment of the age. During the s,hort period
