A colonial "Supplement"...

Item # 553490

June 17, 1773

SUPPLEMENT TO THE MASSACHUSETTS-GAZETTE, Boston June 17, 1773  An uncommon single sheet "Supplement" issue with various news of the day on the front page including: "Declaration of the People found on Board the Schooner Johannes" and an "Act from New York, & items from Philadelphia, London & St. Croix.
The back page is entirely taken up with ads including one headed: "SLAVES" (see) and one worded: "A hearty Male Negro Child of a good Breed, to be given away. Enquire of the printer."
Little did they know then that 2 years later to this date would be fought the Battle of Bunker Hill. Very nice condition, 9 1/4 by 14 1/2 inches.
