Item # 552918

April 24, 1776

THE CONNECTICUT JOURNAL, New Haven, April 24, 1776  Most of the first column on the front page has a report from Congress concerning the importation of tea, ending with a "resolve" that: "...bohea tea ought not to be sold in the smallest quantities at a higher price in any colony than at the rate of three fourths of a dollar per pound..." with more (see for portions). 
Pages 2 & 3 have various items on the Revolutionary War with one report beginning: "The movement of the troops from Boston to Canada is the only measure which assures success in the reduction of America to due obedience...". Page 3 includes a list of foreign and British troops destined for America, totaling 33,000 (see).
Page 3 has a report from Savannah noting delegates selected for the Continental Congress, which includes Button Gwinnett (rare to find his name mentioned in period newspapers). Also mention of the British ship Asia passing thru the Narrows of the Hudson River (see).
Complete in four pages, rubbing to the front page folds cause minor loss to some letters, never bound nor trimmed.
