Item # 649333
February 13, 1768
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, February 13, 1768 As inside report under the heading, "AMERICA - New York," tells of a visit from South Carolina by a number of chiefs of the Cherokee Nation requesting the U.S. government mediate a dispute between the Cherokee Nation and the Six Nations of the Iroquois. Included is a mention that on the day after their arrival, "...three of the Mohawk Chiefs were met by accident by the Cherokees, who thereupon very ceremoniously offered and smoked with them the Calumet of Peace." An interesting report from Boston tells of a meeting to help find employment for the poor. The back page has a whale of a story as well (see images).
Complete in 8 pages, 9 by 12 inches, only minor rubbing, nice condition.
