Pennsylvania Assembly distresses their residents...
Item # 685793 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, August, 1780
* Revolutionary War Era
* 18th century
* From The Enemy
One report notes: "The assembly of Pennsylvania have fallen upon a new mode of distressing the friends of this country resident among them by obliging persons to take the oaths of allegiance or affirmation of fidelity to the state, & to take a certificate of the same, which certificate they are to produce or be liable to such fines as the governing party shall think proper...what seems still more oppressive...that the wives & children of all persons who have joined the enemy do depart the state on pain of being proceeded against as enemies to their country."
Other content focuses on European news.
Still present is the full page plate with the "Likeness of Bishop Warburton" and a gold coin from Syracuse.
Complete in 48 pages, 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inches, full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate, very nice condition.
