March 3, 1791
THE MORNING POST & DAILY ADVERTISER, London, March 3, 1791 Page 2 has a very brief item: "The Cherokee Chiefs are making preparations for their departure; in what manner they will be conveyed out is yet undetermined." This is concerning the trip of Indian chiefs to London to meet with the King of England. Page 3 has a very early item on playing cards, or gambling: "The Greeks at Philippi play Pharo [faro] in quite a different manner from the real game. The players would do well to examine the face of the cards..." with more (see).
Four pages, very nice condition.
