Criticizing plans to acknowledge American independence...

Item # 696584

May 14, 1782

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, May 14, 1782  Over one-third of page 6 is a letter signed: "A British and also A Real American Patriot", which is very critical of plans to offer peace with America and to acknowledge its independence.
It notes in part: "...Shall our hasty peace-makers then sever those Colonies from the British empire by declaring them independent?...the proposition of granting independence to the Colonies is analogous to such a scheme & can redound no more to their interest than to our own. To bring about a reconciliation on a permanent basis is our mutual advantage..." with much more.
Eight pages, 8 1/2 by 11 1/4 inches, very nice condition.
