A middle-ground approach to the war in America...
Item # 658972
February 06, 1779
THE LONDON EVENING POST, England, Feb. 6, 1779 The back page has a brief yet very interesting report: "The total abandonment of America has brought on some little struggles in the Cabinet within these few days. Some were so frugal & conscientious to talk of the expense and the impracticability of holding it. Others still asked for more money and more blood. A middle course is said to be adopted, to garrison a few places, act on the defensive only; and by these means, preserve at least the appearance of American dependence on the Mother country."
Four pages, folio size, never-trimmed margins, red tax stamp on the front page, nice condition.
