Page 5 has a letter from New York noting in part: "The peace is rendered still more humiliating to the Loyalists from the fixed rancour and enmity discovered by the resolves of the several States, and every one here that can possibly retreat to their only asylum, Nova Scotia and Canada, are preparing to remove when the army finally quits this city..." with more. Also a report concerning an agreement with the Six Indian Nations who fought for the British, involving Sir John Johnstone.
