THE GENERAL EVENING POST, London, April 29, 1783
* Robert Morris to resign
* U.S. Superintendent of Finance
The front page has a nice report from "America" concerning the resignation of the famed patriot Robert Morris from the position of Superintendent of Finance for the fledgling federal government. Included is a letter from him in which he says he will resign on May 1 (see). Page 3 mentions that Congress has granted: "...a very large tract of country in Carolina to the Marquis de la Fayette."
Four pages, nice condition.
