The photo shows one of the more decorative and larger engravings to be found in an 18th century American newspaper, making this a very nice issue for display.
The front page has a few bits with oblique references to the end of the Revolutionary War. Page 3 has a document from London concerning an Act of Parliament on trade with America (see).
Complete in 4 pages, never-trimmed margins, a few period notations in margins, generally very nice. A very handsome display issue.
