THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Oct. 15, 1782 

* Possible peace treaty ?
* American Independence ?


The entire front page and one-third of pg. 2 are taken up with a lengthy letter concerning the situation with America and the terms for a peace treaty, with much thought on independence.
 The opening statement sets the tone for this notable report: "Nothing can equal the surprise...a letter signed Guy Carleton, R. Digby dated New York...addressed to Gen. Washington. It declares, that his Britannic Majesty had given orders to Mr. Grenville, negociating a peace at Paris, to propose...the independence of the Thirteen American Provinces instead of making it the condition of a general treaty..." and so much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, 9 by 12 inches, very nice condition.
