Battle of White Plains...



Item # 565857

GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, December, 1776  This significant issue contains General Washington's actual correspondence with General Howe on the prospects of an early peace, which would mean the Americans would have to abandon their Declaration of Independence.  The correspondence between the two is fascinating reading (see portions in the photos).
There is also information from the Continental Congress signed in type: "John Hancock," on the possible POW exchanges including the famous Ethan Allen, plus there is a lengthy editorial by a British gentleman who rails against the wording of the Declaration of Independence, citing phrases like passages such as "all men are created equal," and "certain unalienable rights," etc. Also: "Debates in Parliament" includes talk on American affairs. "Strictures on Philander's Defence of the American Congress" "Proceedings of the American Colonies" talks of the war in New York vicinity around the Bronx, White Plains, etc., mentioning: "...his Majesty's light troops took possession of the heights of New Rochell..." Also a bit on: "A Brief Description of the Country where the war is now carrying on in New York".
Complete in  46 page issue with full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate. Measures 5 by 8 1/2 inches and in great condition.
