To Serve Well and Faithfully: Labor And Indentured Servants In Pennsylvania, 1682-1800 - Sharon V. Salinger. Thousands crossed the Atlantic to labor as bound workers in the Quaker colony. They came with little more than vague promises that servitude would propel them toward a future that would enable them to lead independent lives. What motivated them to take the chance? What work did they perform? And what became of them after they had served their time? These are some of the questions this study seeks to answer.
