Item # 672492
February 07, 1782
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Feb. 7, 1782 All of the front page, page 2, and a portion of page 3 are taken up with: "Further Particulars of the Debate in the House of Lords...on the Duke of Richmond's Motion Respecting the Execution of Col. Haynes in America." This was a very controversial event in the Revolutionary War as Isaac Haynes was hanged by the British under controversial charges.
Near the back is nearly half a page of news from Charleston which also includes a Proclamation from British General Leslie in which he pledges the support & protection of all loyal subjects in the colony.
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
