April 10, 1779
THE MIDDLESEX JOURNAL & EVENING POST, London, April 10, 1779
* Rare Revolutionary war era title
* British General William Howe
Over half of the ftpg. is taken up with a continuation of: "A Vote of Censure on Administration for Not Sending Out a Reinforcement Earlier Last Year to Lord Howe at New York". Photos show portions of the interesting argument.
Page 3 has: "Advice has been received that the Spaniards have lately strengthened two forts at the entrance of the Mississippi, which...entirely command the navigation of that river, and great part of the Gulph of Mexico."
Another item notes: "...was reported that some dispatches were brought from New York that an engagement had happened between a detachment of the King's troops & a party of the Rebel army, in which the former were defeated...and supposed to be an invention."
Four pages, good condition.
