Part of this lengthy report is the letter to Henry Laurens in Congress at Philadelphia from James Gambier, one of the commissioners from England.
Although not called for, present is the foldout map of: "A Plan of the River Lagon & the (Intended Navigable Canal from Belfast to Loughneagh..." because the related article is in this issue.
