Pg. 2 has a short yet notable bit: "On Monday, & not before, his Excellency Sir Guy Carleton set out from his apartment in Duke Street, Grosvenor square, for Portsmouth, to embark immediately on his expedition to New York to take upon him the chief command of his Majesty's forces in America...". The top of the bkpg. has an item: "...from a friend at Boston which says, 'Every day increases our hopes that we shall soon enter into a negociation for a reconciliation with our mother country. the Congress is heartily tired of the arbitrary proceedings of the French, and are much displeased with the conduct of General Washington, who is entirely in the French interest, for which reason the Congress are the more desirous of being reconciled with England.' "
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
