Item # 601355
December 2, 1769
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Dec. 2, 1769
* Non-Importation agreement
Page 2 has a brief item headed: "America" from New York (see), and the back page has a letter from Connecticut to a gentleman in Boston noting: "The public spirited & generous union & conduct of the merchants respecting non-importation are, & deserve to be greatly applauded, & will be had in honorable remembrance to late posterity whether they effect the noble end propos'd or not; though I have no doubt but persisted in a little longer, they will be happy means of procuring America the redress of grievances & freeing her & the Mother Country from the fatal effects of oppressive & arbitrary measures." (see)
Eight pages, 8 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition.
