THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Aug. 6, 1782

Page 4 has an interesting report which explains how the British soldiers  fighting in America are paid (see). Page 5 has news headed: "America" with datelines from Charleston and Annapolis mentioning in part: "...in an excursion he made to Amelia twp. last week fell in with a part of Rebel Militia on their march from the Congress to Gen. Greene's camp whom he instantly charged, killing four & putting the rest too flight."  The Maryland Assembly resolved: "...that peace with Great Britain...is an object truly desirable; but that war, with all its calamities, is to be preferred to national dishonour...any negotiation for peace or truce not agreeable to the alliance with France is inadmissible..." and much more.
Eight pages, 8 1/4 by 11 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
