THE EDINBURGH EVENING COURANT, Scotland, Aug. 9, 1780
* American Revolutionary War
Page 2 has a report: "A gentleman just arrived from Virginia, by the way of New York, says the distresses of the inhabitants of that province are hardly to be described; that many of the first families had not tasted a morsel of fresh meat for near two months...This intelligence seems to account sufficiently for what we have lately heard of the disposition of the Virginians to emancipate themselves from that tyranny, which has proved the source of so many misfortunes & submit once more to a government under which they were formerly happy." (see)
Four pages, very light rubbing to the top of the front page, nice condition.
