Page 2 has a report which mentions: "After the stamp act took place in America, the news printers there put a large black border round their newspapers, to denote their being in mourning; and we hear from Cleveland in Yorkshire, that a wag in that neighbourhood has copied the example, by putting a black border round many of the post bills...".
Four pages, nice red tax stamp on page 3, never bound nor trimmed, very nice condition.
