Interesting debates in the House of Commons on the war in America...
Item # 659109
May 4, 1779
THE LONDON EVENING POST, England, May 4, 1779 Page 3 has some lengthy reporting on discussions in the "House of Commons" which include much on the state of the war in America including the examination of the actions of various military officers. One bit notes: "...hoped for a successful campaign; this was at a time when the rebellion was almost crushed & when, if the General had thought proper to cross the Delaware, Philadelphia would have surrendered and he would have been in possession of all Pennsylvania to New York and the Jerseys...". Much more as well, as seen in the photos.
The front page has: "American Prisoners - The following sums have been received towards their relief..." followed by the list.
Four pages, folio size, never-trimmed margins, red tax stamp on page 3, nice condition.
