THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, October 30, 1760  Page 2 has: "The Lord Marshal's Order for a General Mourning for his late Majesty King George the Second.' (see)  Also a report from the "London Gazette Extraordinary" headed: "A Proclamation Requiring all persons being in Office of Authority of Government at the Decease of the late King, to proceed in the Execution of their respective Offices."
