"Promise to pay" for a vote...



Item # 588100

December 20, 1711

THE POST BOY, London, December 20, 1711 The decorative masthead of this issue includes two nice engravings. A front page article is of a "Promise to Pay" note in which Mr. John Hargreaves is asking for Mr. James Spotswood "to vote against the interest of that Church, and his own Conscience". The text of the note is included in the article. Also on the front page is of the rejoicing of the return of the Majesties and the Prince to Madrid and the celebration which occurred along with additional information on Madrid.

The back page includes an amusing ad of a husband's notice of not paying any debts of his wife, the description of his wife interesting!

This is a single sheet issue with a very lite foxing, otherwise in nice condition. See photos for details.
