Page 4 is entirely taken up with the petitions of various merchants in Charleston to General Leslie (military commander of British troops in the city) recalling a commercial agreement of two years prior, now suspect given the planned evacuation of the British from Charleston.
Page 6 includes: "In the Treaty of Peace now carrying on between Great Britain & other belligerent powers, the former has taken care to stipulate for a provision for the unfortunate Loyalists and refugees..." and more concerning setting aside a tract of land in Canada for them to relocate to.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, 9 by 12 inches, very nice condition.
