Item # 646158
May 26, 1774
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, May 26 1774 Page 6 has a report which begins: "The Boston Gazette of March 7, 1774, contains articles of impeachment of high crimes & misdemeanors against Peter Oliver, Esq., Chief Justice of the Superior Court of Judicature..." with the balance of this nearly full page report focused on this issue. There is also a letter to the House of Representatives signed in type by the governor: T. Hutchinson. All of this relates to the recent "Hutchinson Letters Affair" which resulted in an effort to oust the governor based on revelations of his comments concerning Americans.
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/4 inches, full red ink tax stamp on pg. 2, very nice condition.
