Thomas Paine...



Item # 565347

May 2, 1782

THE SALEM GAZETTE, Massachusetts, May 2, 1782 

* Revolutionary war original from America
 

Most of the front page is taken up with a portion of his essay of March 5, 1782, headed "Common Sense To the People of America. On the Expences, Arrangements, and Disbursement for carrying on the War, and finishing it with Honour and Advantage." (see). Given the great length of the essay it is not here in its entirety. We do provide with this issue, however, a computer printout of the complete text.

A page 3 report from Richmond notes: "...that our army is still in possession of every part of that country except Charlestown; that nothing very capital had happened since the battle of Eutaw though the enemy had lately made a stroke at General Marion...the Indians had lately made an attack upon the settlements of Monongalia...We hear that General Greene has detached a body of Carolinians & Georgians, reinforced by a part of militia from Washington..." with more (see).

Complete in 4 pages, subscriber's name in the upper right of the front page, very nice, clean condition.
