Another page has reports concerning non-importation. Included is a letter from Philadelphia to New York which notes: "...sorry to find...that a majority of your city have determined to break your non-importation agreement; a measure which we think will be prejudicial to your own & the liberties of all America..." with more (see).
An item on the back page as well concerning closing down fishing on the banks off the American coast (see). Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 inches, great condition.
