    The Gazetteer and New Daily Advertiser. Two pages, printed on recto and verso, 12.25" x 18.25", London, April 12, 1779. This issue contains an interesting letter from "Augustus," concerning England's waning power in America, and how best to regain it. Moderate age toning; stains, chips at edges. Very good condition.

    More Information:

    Aforementioned article reads, in part: "Much do I regret that ever Britain attempted to impose taxes on America. If, however, this nation should be of opinion that a few years longer dominion over America is worth all the toil and expence of lives and fortunes we so profusely bestow upon it, I think that to mix lenity with rigour is the only conduct that we ought to follow."
