A very nice article on: "Lord Ca--d-n's Speech on the Declaratory Bill of the Sovereignty of Great Britain over the Colonies" which includes: "...more & more convinced me tha the B___ P___ have no right to Tax the A____a. I shall not, therefore, consider the declaratory bill now lying on your table...the very existence of which is illegal, absolutely illegal..." with more (note some words not spelled out so as not to incriminate the writer; a common practice then). This article takes over two pages (see for the beginning).
An article on: "An Antient Coin" includes prints of both sides. Also in this issue is: "French Account of the Patagonians" "The Question in Optics Solved".
There is a full page plate which accompanies an article on a "Curious Monument" (see images).
