Over half of the front page is a report on the latest from America from a New York letter from General Gage, commander in chief of the British forces in America, to the Earl of Halifax, Secretary of State. The letter concerns relations with the Indians. Near the beginning is: "The perfidy of the Shawnese and Delawares, and their having broken the ties which even the savage nations hold sacred amongst each other, required vigorous measures to reduce them. We had experienced their treachery so often that I determined to make no peace with them..." with much more, ending with: "...I now flatter myself that the country is restored to its former tranquility sand that a general, and it is to be hoped, lasting peace is concluded with all the Indian national who have taken up arms against his Majesty."
Page 6 has a letter from Charleston beginning: "The Governor of New Orleans has issued a proclamation, by order of his master the French King, notifying that the island and city of New Orleans are ceded to his most Catholic Majesty [Spain]. So that now we may congratulate the true friends of their country, on the expulsion of the 'french from all North America...".
