Inside has over a full column of reports headed: "America", from New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, one paragraph noting: "...freeholders & other inhabitants of the town of Boston met at Faneuil hall when they were well pleased with the accounts which had been received from home in regard to the progress of the repeal of the stamp-act; whereupon they voted the methods to exhibit their joy when the account shall arrive of the bill for a repeal having passed the whole legislature..." followed by more on the plans for celebration (see).
Elsewhere are a few economic reports concerning America. Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 inches, never-trimmed margins, full red tax stamp on the back page, very nice condition.
