A substitute for British tea... Letter to the ladies of North America...
Item # 657569 THE GLOCESTER JOURNAL, England, Jan. 4, 1768 (currently spelled Gloucester) Page 2 has a report from Boston concerning the finding of "hyperion or Labrador tea" in the colonies, of special interest given the recent non-importation of tea from England.
Also an item noting: "By letters from Philadelphia we are credibly informed that a number of new buildings are going to be built there, that the suburbs are going to be greatly increased...so great is the increase of inhabitants in that happy province."
Page 3 has a lengthy & interesting "...address to the ladies of North America...". This is followed by a report beginning: "His Majesty has been pleased to appoint the Right Hon. the Earl of Hillsborough to the new office of Secretary of State to the Colonies..." and further on: "...From the manner in which the colony business has of late been transacted, and rather neglected, the necessity of a Secretary of State for the colonies only has been more manifest...".
Four pages, a very nice & decorative masthead featuring engravings on either side. Red tax stamp on the ftpg., nice condition.
