For many of us Marylanders, New Castle, Del., ranks as little more than a blip - an interstate exit you rush past on your way to Wilmington, Philadelphia or New York. And what a shame. With its cobblestone streets, sweeping views of the Delaware River, grassy commons and rich architectural heritage, New Castle's historic district ranks in my book as one of the finest in the mid-Atlantic region. It's got history: William Penn first set foot in North America here in 1682. It's got characters: Daniel Boone, the Marquis de Lafayette, Harriet Tubman and George Washington, chief among them.

COMES now the 350th anniversary of the birth of William Penn. In the spirit of neighborly love, and with real respect for this exemplar of the Religious Society of Friends, a message to the people of Pennsylvania: We hope thee'll have good weather for the ceremonies. (How it did rain, on the 350th anniversary of the Ark and the Dove, here below.)There are also going to be William Penn observances in Maryland, which after all was home to Quaker emigrants from England years before the Crown established Penn's Woods.
