Item # 657564 THE GLOCESTER JOURNAL, England, Nov. 9, 1767 

* Early Southern America report

(currently spelled Gloucester)  The ftpg. has most of the first column taken up with details of the  funeral of the Duke of York & Albany, younger bother to King George III. He died in Monaco while on a trip but was buried in Westminster Abbey.
Pages 2 & 3 contains letter from Charleston, one bit noting: "...I must then tell you we are all running made as fast as we can & seem to vie with each other in giving proofs of our disaffection to the British government...". This details on plans to destroy any ship what would arrive a a port out of respect for the non-importation agreement.
Four pages, a very nice & decorative masthead featuring engravings on either side. Never-trimmed margins, red tax stamp on the ftpg., nice condition.
