War events in Rhode Island...



Item # 660041

September 1, 1778

THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, September, 1778  Near the back are reports from the Revolutionary War including letters from on board the "Eagle" dated at Sandy Hook. Also a prefacing letter signed: H. Clinton, introducing a detailed letter from Major-General Robert Pigot on his actions at Newport, Rhode Island, followed by yet another detailed letter from him and then a letter from General Henry Clinton which notes: "...the French fleet; but as they have quitted their station near Sandy Hook, and General Washington has reinforced Sullivan, it is more than probable that Rhode Island is become their object...".
Lacking both of the plates called for.
Complete in 48 pages, full title/contents page, 5 by 8 inches, very nice, clean condition.

Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine but a much more scarce title. The title/contents page features a great engraving of the skyline of London.
