Discussing Clinton's Manifesto & Proclamation: England's last attempt at reconciliation...



Item # 657042

December 2, 1778

THE TOWN & COUNTRY MAGAZINE--Supplement for 1778  This supplemental issue was issued at the end of the year. There is nice reporting on discussions in the House of Commons on Clinton's Manifesto & Proclamation, which was England's last offer for a reconciliation. It includes: "...the part of the Proclamation which gave such an alarm, to be nothing more than a warning to the rebels not to expect that lenity in future, which we had shewn to them during the course of the war. By their alliance with France they had forfeited all right to clemency; they were therefore no longer to be treated as subjects of Great Britain but as appendages to the french monarchy...". Much more good reading.
An article: "Description of the West Indies" deals with Barbadoes, St. Christopher's Antigua, Nevis & Montserrat, Barbuda, Anguilla, Dominica, St. Vincent, Granada & the Granadines, Tobago, Bermudas or Summer Islands, Bahama Islands, St. John's, etc. Also: "Newfoundland".
Four pages are taken up with the continuation of: "The Rise & Progress of the Present Unhappy War in America".
Both full page plates called for are present.
Complete in 46 pages, 5 by 8 1/4 inches, full title/contents page, great condition.
