Sir Guy Carleton arrives in New York to begin negotiations with America to find a peace...



Item # 660237

June 01, 1782

THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, June, 1782 

* American Revolutionary War peace ?

Near the back is an account noting in part: "Sir Guy Carleton, immediately on his arrival at New York, dispatched a messenger...to Congress with a copy of his commission & the powers vested in him by government for opening a treaty with America..." and ending with: "...that the former friendship subsisting between the two countries might be speedily restored on a permanent advantageous, and honourable footing to both."
Both plates called for are lacking.
Complete in 42 pages, 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inches, very nice condition.

Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine but a much more scarce title. The title/contents page features a great engraving of the skyline of London.
