Nice issue from colonial Pennsylvania...
Item # 557305
July 9, 1767
THE PENNSYLVANIA GAZETTE, Philadelphia, July 9, 1767 The entire front page is taken up with various advertisements, including four runaway "Reward" ads.
Page 2 has news from Madrid and London, as well as datelines from Charlestown (Charleston), South Carolina, Philadelphia and New York. The Charleston content includes mention of troubles with the Creek, Choctaw and Cherokee Indians (see).
The balance of the issue is mostly taken up with other advertisements, giving evidence to the great success of this newspaper which was owned by Ben Franklin just a few years previous. This newspaper features a nice engraving of a coat-of-arms in the masthead making this a very displayable newspaper.
Complete in 4 pages and in very nice, clean condition.
