December 02, 1812
BOSTON PATRIOT, Dec. 2, 1812
* General Alexander Smyth
Page 2 has several reports with a Plattsburg, N.Y. dateline. Also a letter from S. T. Anderson with another from Commodore Chauncey datelines from Sacket's Harbor, taking two-thirds of a column & signed in type: Isaac Chauncey. This is a fine account of a naval encounter.
Also a nice & rousing letter headed: "General Smyth To the Soldiers of the Army of the Centre" which begins: "Companions in Arms! The time is at hand when you will cross the stream of Niagara to conquer Canada, and to secure the peace of the American frontier..." with much more. A terrific letter.
Page 3 as: "War Intelligence on the Ocean - Commodore Rodgers" which includes: "American Prizes".
Four pages, some spotted foxing, nearly close-trimmed at the top of page 2, good condition.
