SUPPLEMENT TO THE BOSTON CHRONICLE, Massachusetts, May 23, 1768  The ftpg. has some nice content including a letter to the Liverymen of London, portions including: "...The chief merit with you...I know to be a sacred love of liberty & of those generous principles...have since secured to this nation the great charter of freedom. I will yield to none of my countrymen in this noble zeal...I have steadily pursued the interests of my country without regard to the powerful enemies I created...The two important questions of public liberty, respecting general warrants & the seizure of papers..." with more (see for portions). The discussion carries over to pg. 2.

The bkpg. contains some ads including one headed: "Deserted, from his Majesty's schooner..." with notes on the 5 men (see).
Complete  in 4 pgs., 8 1/2 by 10 1/2 in., some foxing mostly near the margin, generally very nice condition.
