The bottom of page 3 has a brief item: "The accounts of the defeat of Buonaparte, by the Arabs, is not official; and is in some parts contradictory. The Directory has announced to the Councils that he entered Cairo, the last of July. We must wait for something official on his head." Another report--an accurate one-- is near the top of pg. 3: "Defeat Of Bonaparte" which includes: "...brought a corroboration of the defeat of the French fleet by Admiral Nelson..." with a bit more (see).
Four pages, 9 1/4 by 11 3/4 inches, some staining, generally good.
