Page 2 has a letter from General Burgoyne to Sir William Howe dated at Ticonderoga July 2, 1777, plus a report from General Howe to Lord G. Germain dated at New York, July 15, 1777, and also a lengthy report: "...from G. Collier to Mr. Stephens, Halifax, July 12, 1777" with great text on naval events.
Four pages, full red tax stamp on the front page, very nice condition.
