Loyalists have left New York...

Item # 674415

October 30, 1783

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, Oct. 30, 1783  The entire ftpg. is taken up with a very detailed review of a pamphlet: "Observations on the Commerce of  the American States".  Page 3 has a report from Paris that Ben Franklin presented medal to Mr. DeFleury for his efforts in the war.
The back page has an item noting: "The provisional articles of peace have been so indifferently received in America as to occasion several Assemblies to pass resolves declaratory of 'Their determination not to hold themselves bound by the act of the Commissioners at Paris in any thing which relates to the Loyalists..." and: "...They give an account that most of the Loyalists had left New York when they sailed."
Eight pages, 8 1/4 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 343 (released for June, 2024)
