Poor Richard's Dictionary of Philadelphia. Prepared for Presentation to the Associated Advertising Clubs of the World on the Occasion of their visit to Philadelphia in June of the good year 1916. Done by Order of the Poor Richard Club in their Little Home at Number 239 South Camac Street.
The unique club colony in quaint little Camac Street welcomed "Poor Richard" as a worthy fellow Bohemian, when, one day, he came, in his cocked hat and with genial smile, "down the alley," and picked out a home. So, presently, being well pleased with his choice, his "Ad" men moved in and, from that day, they have multiplied and been content; for they happily typify, in their domicile, the simple dignity that Ben Franklin taught, and the virtue of honest, brotherly love implanted on this soil by William Penn.
