Item # 644423
January 1, 1782
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Jan. 1, 1782 Page 4 beings with a letter beginning: "Every good Englishman must feel a very deep concern at the loss of Lord Cornwallis's army...that one great cause which led to that misfortune arose from an unaccountable neglect in suffering Washington quietly to march by New York to Trenton without our making the least attempt to attack him or doing any one thing to intercept him in his march..." with more taking most of the column.
Pg. 6 has: "...that Lord Cornwallis wished to deliver up his sword to the French General Comte de Rochambeau...but told his Lordship that the compliment was due to General Washington and not to him..." with more on this. Pg. 7 has yet another letter concerning the failure of the British in America (see) and pg. 8 has a reflection on the defeat of Cornwallis.
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/4 inches, nice condition.
