Objections to acknowledging American independence...



Item # 640562

April 23, 1782

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, April 23, 1782 

* American Independence ?
* British oppose


The back page has a short bit noting: "It is said the great obstacle of peace with America is  the proposition of independence. The Earl of Shelburne and Lord Ashburton are positively against it. They have already given their opinions publicly."
This is followed by a letter from Amsterdam which notes: "...respect to a peace with England...the French part are against it; they have, however, no objection to a general peace...if England will acknowledge America independent...".
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches, very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 292 (released for March, 2020)...
