A report on the Jay Treaty...



Item # 691039

August 28, 1795

KENTISH GAZETTE, Canterbury, England, Aug. 28, 1795 

* Uncommon 18th century publication
* re. John Jay's Treaty


A handsome issue of the 18th century, with two decorative embellishments in the masthead & ornate lettering in the title.
The middle of page 2 has: "American Treaty - Extract of a Letter from a Merchant in Philadelphia, to his son in London, dated July 15, 1795".
This is an interesting analysis of the pros & cons of the Jay Treaty, which ultimately was approved by Washington & ratified by the government.
Four pages, very nice condition.
