Loyalists have left New York...

Item # 651230

October 30, 1783


* Loyalists (British) escaping America

The entire ftpg. is taken up with a very detailed review of a pamphlet: "Observations on the Commerce of  the American States".  Page 3 has a report from Paris that Ben Franklin presented medal to Mr. DeFleury for his efforts in the war.
The bkpg. has an item noting: "The provisional articles of peace have been so indifferently received in America as to occasion several Assemblies to pass resolves declaratory of 'Their determination not to hold themselves bound by the act of the Commissioners at Paris in any thing which relates to the Loyalists..." and: "...They give an account that most of the Loyalists had left New York when they sailed."
Eight pages, 8 1/4 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition.
