THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Sept. 7, 1776 Page 2 has some Revolutionary War items with bits including: "...that Lord Howe & Admiral Hotham had joined Gen. Howe at Staten Island...Col. MacLeane left Quebec on the 20th of July. Gen. Burgoyne had not penetrated beyond Chamble...were left in garrison at Quebec. They were preparing batteaux to cross the lakes...The Provincials had four armed vessels on the lakes...Lord Dunmore...is gone to George's Island in the mouth of Potomack River. Sir Peter Parker has got over Charlestown Bar. The congress has ordered 13 frigates to be built...Almost every town is fortified..." with more (see).
Nearly a full page is taken up with a terrific letter headed: "To The Opposition, or Friends of the American Rebels in Britain" with a dateline of July 6th, 1776, and signed: Detector Americanus. The photos below show only portions of this lengthy address.
Near the back is a 1 1/2 column article: "Extract of a Letter from Crown Point, dated July 25" which has some nice detail (see for portions).
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/4 inches, nice condition.
