THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Nov. 19, 1767
* Early Florida and Louisiana
* re. The Stamp Act
Page 2 has a report headed "America" with a New York dateline concerning a murder trial (see). Another page has a very brief report from New York noting: "It i very sickly here; the bloody-flux rages, attended with little or no fever, and carries off, in six days time, both old & young, 14 to 15 in a day." (see)
The back page has an: "Extract of a Letter from New York" noting that "...no taxes or duties whatever will be exacted upon goods at any of the ports in Florida or Louisiana...We hear...American debts have actually been paid off to our merchants in England since the repeal of the Stamp Act." (see)
The balance of the issue is taken up with various reports from Europe from just 8 years before the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. Many advertisements as well.
Eight pages, 8 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition.
