New Beginnings *

* Pennsylvania is Established: - A royal charter is granted land to William Penn to lands previously claimed by the Dutch and Swedes. The region is called Upland, but after some brainstorming Penn comes up with a better name... PENNSYLVANIA! [1] [2]
* Bank Checks for London - The first checks appear in England. [3]
* Bank Checks for Boston: "The Fund at Boston in New England" is established. This is a membership bank that allows an exchange of funds between bank members using bank credits that look a lot like modern bank checks. [4]
* Dancing Girls in Paris!: The first women professional dancers appear in Paris... Opera dancers. Not the other kind. [5]
