THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, April 10, 1779
* George Washington's Army
The front page has a brief item from Bourdeaux noting: "Nine sail of American merchant-men have entered this port...a matter of wonder to many here how they escape the English cruisers. All we learn by them is that they are sending men from all the Colonies to reinforce Washington's army, which, by the time he takes the field, will be very strong."
Most of the balance of the issue reports European news, plus some ads. Complete in eight pages, 8 by 11 inches, and in nice condition.
