Item # 651229

October 28, 1783

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Oct. 28, 1783  Page 5 has a letter noting: "...trade of this port is at a very low ebb...nor do I expect it will revive until the States of America obtain a more settled government, which...seems to be at a very considerable distance...the state of Virginia...is under the control of a governor & council..." and more. Another small item has: "One Stinson, who during the war was suspected of being a Loyalists & sent out of the state of New Hampshire...on hearing that the war was over & peace settled, returned...soon as he was landed he was dragged into prison...condemned, and hanged the next day."
Page 7 has "A Proclamation" which relates in part to trade with the American colonies, then a report from a Boston newspaper.
Eight pages, 8 1/4 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition.
