GEORGE WASHINGTON, 1779 PENNSYLVANIA PACKET ORIGINAL REVOLUTIONARY WAR NEWSPAPER

GEORGE WASHINGTON, 1779 REVOLUTIONARY WAR NEWSPAPER

THE PENNSYLVANIA PACKET or the GENERAL ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, May 6, 1779. This is an original newspaper from 1779 with Revolutionary War content and a Proclamation signed in type by GEO WAHINGTON!!!!Also several ads for Rewards for Runaway Slaves included in this issue!!

Nearly half of the front page is taken up with a letter signed: A Pennsylvanian, which discusses various items including some relating to the Revolutionary War, including: "...intended to have been published a few days after the butchery of Mr. Whitmier's family, but by some accident their appearance in print was delayed till after the arrival of the troops to the assistance of that distressed country;...the forces could have been sent early enough not only to prevent these depredations but at the same time to have maintained the strength of the country, which...has, no doubt, been much weakened by the evacuation that ensued..." with much more. Pg. 2 has coverage on the court martial trial of Admiral Keppel (see pics below).

Page 3 has an Act for: "...making more equal the burthen of the public defence; and for filling the quota of troops to be raised in this state."

The back page is entirely filled with ads and political notices, including a very nice: "Proclamation by His Excellency George Washington, Esq; General and Commander in Chief of the Armies of the United States of America." which is concerning a pardon for deserters from the army (see). This Proclamation is signed in type: Geo. Washington.

This RAREissue has a very ornate & decorative masthead (see photos), is complete in 4 pages, folio size with untrimmed margins andstill attached at the spine. It was printed on a heavy rag/cotton paper thus it is not at all brittle to the touch! It is in truly excellent condition.
