Item # 592046
April 24, 1781
THE EDINBURGH ADVERTISER, Scotland, April 24, 1781 The front page has a letter from South Carolina noting: "I should be very happy indeed to confirm your supposed orderly state & government of this country since the surrender of Charlestown [Charleston] but am very sorry to inform you it is far otherwise. For a while there was a calm which made us hope resistance was at an end but it was of short duration. The surges had scarcely subsided before the storm gathered afresh, which being industriously nourished & roused by the sons of treason and rebellion, has again burst on this unhappy distracted country which, at present, abounds with robbers & plunderers...God only knows when our sufferings will have an end..." (see). Page 3 has a report from Virginia.
