    Among the Penn Family letters in the collections of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania is one from London, May 7, 1723, from Thomas Freame to John Penn. It begins “Dear John, is deferential and polite in tone, and uses the Friendly expressions “thee,” “thy,” etc. The writer had apparently been visiting John Penn at his home in the country, and had been ill there. He says, “Pray give my kind regards to thy sister Peggy.” This may have been the beginning of the courtship. Letters from Thomas Penn to John Penn (Margaret’s brothers), October 25 and 31, 1727, refer to Thomas Freame as if married to Margaret, and in May, 1728, a letter suggests the expectation of a child.
