      1775 1775 - Feder in Schwarz, braun laviert, über Bleistiftskizze, auf Bütten, auf Untersatz mit Tuschlinien und Aquarellrand montiert, dort rechts unten signiert und datiert „Parizeau fecit 1775". 15,8:23,5 cm. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Von Callot bis Greuze. Französische Zeichnungen des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts. Im Blickfeld der Goethezeit V. Weimar 2005, S. 220, Nr. 81 mit farb. Abb. Über Parizeaus Leben und Werk ist wenig bekannt und es fehlt bisher eine grundlegende Arbeit über ihn. Seit Beginn der sechziger Jahre war er Schüler von J.Gg. Wille (1715-1808) und als Maler und Radierer in Paris tätig. Nur wenige seiner Gemälde sind bisher bekannt geworden und es scheint, als wäre er hauptsächlich als Zeichner tätig gewesen. Blätter von seiner Hand befinden sich in den Graph. Sammlungen in Düsseldorf, Basel, Darmstadt, dem Metropolitan Museum New York sowie in der Sammlung von Jeffrey E. Horvitz. Georg Melchior Kraus (1737-1806) hat beispielsweise nach ihm gezeichnet.

        Only weeks after the British surrendered Fort St. Jean, Quebec, Connecticut Captain Noble Benedict appoints his nephew Jonah a Sergeant. Both would be captured at Fort Washington in 1776 and held on one of the notorious British prison ships

      Fort St. John [Quebec], November 19, 1775. 13.75" x 8.5". "Manuscript Document Signed, ""Noble Benedict Capt,"" 1 page, 13.75"" x 8.5"", ""Fort St. John,"" [Fort St. Jean, Quebec], November 19, 1775, appointing Jonah Benedict as a Sergeant in ""the Fifth Regiment Raised by the Colony of Connecticut Commanded by David Waterbury Jur. Col."" Rough separated folds reinforced with paper on verso, other marginal tears and a few small losses affecting a few words of text, light soiling, else good. Offered together with a manuscript copy of Jonah Benedict's affidavit attesting to his service and imprisonment by the British as well as the aforementioned appointment as Sergeant, 2 pages, 8"" x 9.5"", Westchester County, New York, August 26, 1839. Expected folds, light soiling, else very good.Captain Noble Benedict's company was part of the regiment commanded by Colonel David Waterbury organized in April 1775 in response to the Lexington Alarm. The regiment rendezvoused in Stamford. In June 1775, after the regiment was adopted into the Continental Army, it marched to New York City where it joined troops from that state on a northward march toward Canada, where they helped lay siege to Fort St. Jean on the Richelieu River led by General Richard Montgomery. The surrender of that fort forced Sir Guy Carleton to evacuate Montreal, which Continental troops entered, without opposition, on November 13, 1775. It would appear that Noble's company remained behind at Fort St. Jean to hold the post during the American operations in Canada. At the end of December 1775, the 5th Connecticut terms of enlistment expired and Noble and his company departed Canada for Connecticut. Soon after their return to Connecticut in January 1776, Noble Benedict formed another company, to join Philip Burr Bradley's Connecticut Regiment raised for the defense of New York. Jonah Benedict joined the company as a sergeant in April 1776. The company helped prepare for the defenses of the city and retreated to Fort Washington, the last American stronghold on the island of Manhattan, following the defeats at Long Island and White Plains. Half of Benedict's company was captured when the post's commander, surrounded on land and water, surrendered on November 16, 1776 (the other half was stationed at Fort Lee on the other side of the Hudson River). In a copy of his pension affidavit that he swore out in 1810, Jonah Benedict wrote that after he was captured at Fort Washington, he was ""put aboard of the Prison Ship Gro[s]venor. Lay in the Wallabout [Bay]... Dr. [Saler] Pell was my Doctor; Mrs Greenslate was my nurse... I never been well since I was a prisoner..."" According to his widow's 1838 pension application, Jonah (1741-1811) was eventually transferred to the sugar house on Liberty Street in New York ""until he was permitted to depart or sent away, being then considered at the point of death..."" in April 1777, Jonah ""was carried home to Danbury ... in a horse Litter, he arrived home about two weeks before Danbury was burnt by the British, April 26, 1777, where he partially regained his health..."" (""Jonah Benedict,"" Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application Files, NARA M804) The physician that Jonah Benedict mentions was Saler Pell, who served as surgeon of Bradley's regiment to December 1776 and then as part of the 5th Connecticut until January 1777. (Heitman)Jonah's captain (and uncle), Noble Benedict (1735-1809) was also captured at Fort Washington but due to his rank, was probably not confined to the prison ships or the sugar house. High ranking officers were allowed to find their own quarters within New York City, while lower ranking line officers were paroled to various towns in Brooklyn, where they stayed with farm families until they were exchanged. We are unsure when Noble was exchanged, but his descendants claimed he served until the end of the war. (""Noble Benedict"", Ibid)"

        TAXATION NO TYRANNY; AN ANSWER TO THE RESOLUTIONS AND ADDRESS OF THE AMERICAN CONGRESS

      London. 1775.. [4],91pp. Half title. Modern calf, gilt. Leather bookplate on front pastedown. Internally clean. Near fine. In a blue half morocco solander case. Second edition, published the same year as the first, of this famous political pamphlet by lexicographer Samuel Johnson. This edition includes a number of textual changes from the first. Written in response to the opening rumblings of the American Revolution, Johnson's acerbic pamphlet was published at the height of his popularity and fame. He writes of the Americans: "That it is their duty to pay the cost of their own safety they seem to admit; nor do they refuse their contribution to the exigencies, whatever they may be, of the British empire; but they make this participation of the public burden a duty of very uncertain extent, and imperfect obligation, a duty temporary, occasional and elective, of which they reserve to themselves the right of settling the degree, the time, and the duration, of judging when it may be required, and when it has been performed." This pamphlet elicited many responses, and doubtless further spurred the cause of the Revolution. ESTC T141339. SABIN 36303. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 75-69b. COURTNEY & SMITH, p.125.

        COMMON SENSE: IN NINE CONFERENCES, BETWEEN A BRITISH MERCHANT AND A CANDID MERCHANT OF AMERICA, IN THEIR PRIVATE CAPACITIES AS FRIENDS; TRACING THE SEVERAL CAUSES OF THE PRESENT CONTESTS BETWEEN THE MOTHER COUNTRY AND HER AMERICAN SUBJECTS

      London: J. Dodsley, in Pall-Mall; and Brotherton and Sewel, 1775.. x,117pp. Quarto. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Worm track in lower gutter of second half, not affecting any text. Overall, a large, handsome, near fine copy. Untrimmed and unopened. Hanway as a merchant and British patriot looked askance at what was happening in the American colonies. His message was well meaning, but his tone, as when he writes of the colonists as "every day growing more civilized, and more agreeable fellow subjects," must have seemed patronizing. The text, as explained in the title, is in the form of a dialogue between a British and American merchant, in which the nature of sovereign authority, taxation, trade, and the pros and cons of seeking independence are discussed in a friendly and amicable way. There is, of course, no question for Hanway as to which side common sense must come down upon. "Arguments supposed to have converted the 'candid' Yankee seem quite unconvincing" - Howes. It is unclear if Thomas Paine knew of Hanway's title, but it remains a trifle ironic that within a few months Paine published his famous work. SABIN 14998. HOWES C646, "aa."

        Handwritten document signed just 12 days after he and 12 other patriots signed the Fincastle Resolutions, precursor to the Declaration of Independence

      Fincastle County, Virginia, February 1, 1775. 7.5" x 1.75". "Autograph Document Signed ""Walter Crockett,"" 1 page, 7.5"" x 1.75"". Fincastle, February 1, 1775. On laid paper. Fine condition. In full, ""Fincastle. This day Samuel Percifel brought one old wolfs Head and took the oath by law Required Certified by me this 1rst day of February 1775. Walter Crockett"" Many counties paid bounties for killing wolves which terrified settlers who feared attacks. Crockett could be a relative of Davy Crockett of Alamo fame.The Fincastle Resolutions of January 20, 1775The Fincastle Resolutions, adopted on January 20, 1775, were the first resolutions adopted by colonists which put its signers' lives on the line, concluding ""These are our real, though unpolished sentiments, of liberty and loyalty, and in them we are resolved to live and die."" The Declaration of Independence, adopted on July 4, 1776, concluded: ""we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.""Walter Crockett (1732-1811) was one of the 13 representatives elected by the freemen of Fincastle County, Virginia who, on January 20, 1775, just 12 days before he wrote and signed the document here offered, signed a resolution addressed to the four member of the Virginia delegates meeting at the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia, beginning, ""To the Honourable Peyton Randolph, Esq.: Richard Henry Bland, Benjamin Harrison, and Edmund Pendleton, Esquires, the Delegates from this colony who attended the Continental Congress held at Philadelphia. Gentlemen, Had it not been for our remote situation, and the Indian war which we were lately engaged in, to chastise those cruel and savage people for the many murders and depredations they have committed amongst us (now happily terminated, under the auspices of our present worthy Governour, his Excellency the Right Honourable the Earl of Dunmore) we should before this time have made known to you our thankfulness for the very important services you have rendered to this country, in conjunction with the worthy Delegates from the other provinces..."" Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, began his term in the Second Continental Congress on June 20, 1775, five months after the Fincastle Resolutions, but he undoubtedly was aware of the document.The Fincastle Resolutions conclude: ""But if no specific measures shall be proposed or adopted by Great Britain, and our enemies will attempt to dragoon us out of those inestimable privileges which we are entitled to as subjects, and to reduce us to a state of slavery, we declare, that we are deliberately and resolutely determined never to surrender them to any power upon earth, but at the expense of our lives. hese are our real, though unpolished sentiments, of liberty and loyalty, and in them we are resolved to live and die..."""

        A Modern System of Natural History. Containing accurate descriptions, and faithful histories, of animals, vegetables, and minerals. Together with their properties, and various uses in medicine, mechanics, manufactures, &c

      London: F. Newberry, 1775. Twelve duodecimo volumes, with 117 engraved plates (of 118, lacking single plate); preliminaries thumbed, title of one volume perforated and another significantly browned, one leaf of text ink-stained, general foxing and offsetting; worn contemporary sheep, scuffed with split hinges; fair condition overall, as is often the case with juvenile literature of this period. A comprehensive natural history encyclopaedia for young people, based on Pennant's system of classification. Animals are arranged according to quadrupeds, fish, birds, and insects, and each of these classifications is separately indexed. Besides the more usual natural history descriptions of animals, vegetables and minerals this work is the first to describe for children Australia's most famous marsupial - the kangaroo. The entry under the Jerboa (vol. III p. 172) reads, 'Mr. Banks brought home the skin of an animal, which he calls the kanguroo [sic], which, from its general outline, and the most striking peculiarity of its figure, greatly remembers the jerboa, yet it entirely differs in size, and in many of those minute distinctions which point out the general ranks of nature. The kanguroo is often known to weigh above fifty pounds'.The kangaroo was first seen by both Banks and Cook on 24 June 1770, and the first description of it appeared in Hawkesworth's Account of the Voyages... published in 1773: 'I should have taken it for a wild dog, if instead of running, it had not leapt like a hare or a deer... Mr. Banks also had an imperfect view of this animal, and was of opinion that its species was hitherto unknown...'. During the remainder of the exploration of the east coast of Australia, Cook records that both he and Banks shot and ate kangaroo on several occasions. He records two in particular that weighed eighty pounds and fifty-four pounds, the skins of which Joseph Banks took back to England with him.Illustrations of over four hundred animals finely engraved in copper complete this charming eighteenth-century work intended solely to be used by children.

Tête de collection de ce périodique dont la publication s'étendit jusqu'en 1789 et atteignit 112 volumes ; elle est de ce fait très difficile à réunir, encore davantage en reliure uniforme. On sait que la première partie due au marquis de Paulmy est la meilleure de toutes, elle fut continuée par Martin et d'autres. (On joint un 13eme volume, même reliure des mois de février et mars 1777). Reliure en plein veau blond granité. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin vert. Outre un appareil critique très intéressant (introductions, commentaire et analyses), la bibliothèque s'organise dans chaque volume selon un plan établi définissant les différents types de romans, en 8 classes : Traduction des romans grecs et latins, les romans de chevalerie, le roman historique, romans d'amour, romans de spiritualités, romans satiriques et comiques, Nouvelles historiques et contes, romans merveilleux. Le premier volume réunit l'âne d'or d'Appulée, Le roman de Merlin, Le triomphe des neuf preux, l'Astrée, Les aventures étranges de Lycidas et de Cléorithe de Basire, Le Satyricon, Le roman de Mélusine de Jean d'Arras, Le Dauphin par d'Aulnoy, La bonne femme par Mademoiselle de la Force... On y trouve donc des romans rares et les plus connus comme Don Quichotte. Par la suite : Le prince Erastus, les contes de Perraut, Perceval le Gallois, la Cyropédie, Histoire de Zarine par Nicolas de Damas, Perceforest, roi de Grande-Bretagne, Romans de M. Camus, L'Utopie de More, Théagène et Chariclée, Histoire du chevalier Tristan, Argénis et Polliarque, Histoire de Jean Fauste, et nombre de contes et nouvelles historiques oubliés... On notera que les romans médiévaux sont bien représentés. Il ne se trouve que des extraits des longs romans, la bibliothèque universelle les intégrant dans la collection dont la vocation est d'être encyclopédique sur son sujet, elle tend donc chronologiquement à intégrer tous les romans écrits depuis l'origine jusqu'à l'époque contemporaine.

In 12 (10x17,5cm), xij, 502pp. (2)., relié. - First edition of this book published by Alletz containing a selection of reflections, thoughts of various extracts from works of the Abbe de Saint-Pierre, renowned economist considered utopian. Full glossy blond calf and marbled contemporary. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. Marbled edges. Good copy. Charles Irenee Castel de Saint-Pierre (1658-1743) was a French philosopher and writer. It is considered a precursor of the Enlightenment because of the new ideas he divulged. He attended assiduously salons of Madame de Lafayette and Mrs. Lambert. It is still famous for its project of universal peace among nations, probably the first project of European unification, which inspired not only Rousseau, but the creators of the UN. The book brings together political, economic considerations, legal, education and training, and many other areas, but always within the framework of a thought reflecting on the organization of a society. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure en plein veau blond glacé et marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Tranches marbrées. Bon exemplaire. Charles Irénée Castel de Saint-Pierre (1658-1743) fut un philosophe et un écrivain français. On le considère comme un précurseur des Lumières en raison des idées nouvelles qu'il divulgua. Il fréquenta assidument les salons de Madame de Lafayette et de Madame de Lambert. Il est demeuré célèbre pour son Projet de paix universelle entre les nations, sans doute le premier projet d'unification européenne, qui inspira non seulement Rousseau, mais les créateurs de l'ONU. L'ouvrage rassemble des réflexions politiques, économique, morales, sur l'éducation et l'instruction, et sur bien d'autres domaines, mais toujours dans le cadre d'une pensée réfléchissant sur l'organisation d'une société.

        A martyr of Bunker Hill, Nathan Blood, confirms receipt of wooden bottles, pots and dishes for the army just days after Lexington Concord

      n.p., April 27, 1775. 4 x 2. "Autograph Receipt Signed, ""Nathan Blood Quarter m[aste]r"", on the verso of a Manuscript Document Signed by Commissary General, John Pigeon. Pigeon writes, ""April 25th, 1775 to Comd Davis / deliver to Capt. Reuben Dow six pots & twelve Dishes & Twenty wooden bottles."" Nathan Blood confirms, ""Rec'd the Contents by me / Nathan Blood Quarter m[aste]r"" The receipt is docketed in unknown hand, ""Order from Com:y Genl: & Recd from Nathan Blood 27th April""Nathan Blood died at Bunker Hill only a short time after writing this. The document is tipped to a larger sheet with an image of a Bunker Hill memorial listing Nathan Blood among those who died June 17, 1775. He was in Captain Reuben Dow's Company, William Prescott's Regiment, which suffered heavy losses that day.In February 1775, the second Provincial Congress directed the Committee of Safety to designate one of its members as commissary. John Pigeon was selected later that month and given the title Commissary of Stores. By April, he was identified as Commissary General, the title he used in this document. However, once George Washington arrived to command the New England forces, victualing responsibilities were transferred to Joseph Trumbull, Commissary General of the Continental Army, presumably reverting back to the Commissary General upon Washington's departure (WorldCat, LC: Massachusetts. Commissary General)"

        STRICTURES ON A PAMPHLET, ENTITLED, A "FRIENDLY ADDRESS TO ALL REASONABLE AMERICANS, ON THE SUBJECT OF OUR POLITICAL CONFUSIONS." ADDRESSED TO THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA

      [New York: James Rivington], 1775.. [13]-25pp. Modern paper covered boards, printed paper label. Titlepage trimmed a bit close. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. An odd title, this is the second half only of the Rivington edition of Henry Barry's THE GENERAL ATTACKED BY A SUB-ALTERN, with its own titlepage, of the tract that Barry was responding to, Charles Lee's STRICTURES.... The English-born Lee had a long career in the British army before eventually taking up the American cause. A fiery republican, he served as a general in the Continental Army, rallying troops and readying defenses before eventually clashing with George Washington over strategy. He participated in the pamphlet wars leading up to the Declaration of Independence with the present work, written in response to Loyalist Thomas Bradbury Chandler's FRIENDLY ADDRESS TO ALL REASONABLE AMERICANS. Also published in New York in 1774, Chandler warned the colonists against military or economic measures against British authority. Lee essentially argues that the British forces aren't so tough, and that a disciplined American force can triumph in its righteous cause. Thomas Adams treats this item in two entries of his AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE, saying it was not published separately from Rivington's 1775 edition of Barry, yet it appears that some enterprising booksellers occasionally made it a discreet title.

        A Sermon on the Present Situation of American Affairs. Preached in Christ-Church, June 23, 1775. At the Request of the Officers of the Third Battallion of the City of Philadelphia, and District of Southwark.

      Philadelphia: James Humphreys, junior, 1775. - 8vo., (8 x 5 inches). (A bit browned and spotted throughout). Modern red cloth, the smooth spine lettered in gilt (extremities slightly worn). First edition. Two distinct editions exist, with identical titles, imprints, and collations. In the present edition (Adams 196b) "A sermon on the present situation of American affairs." is printed in four lines. William Smith served as the first provost of the College of Philadelphia (which would become the University of Pennsylvania). "During his long tenure as Penn's first provost, Smith had a significant impact on the early formation of the college which would later be known as the University of Pennsylvania. Although Smith led Anglican services at the College and encouraged discussions of the Bible and religion outside of the classroom, he encouraged students of all faiths to attend and did not include official courses of religion in the curriculum. It was his view that students learned true religion from exposure to pure and truthful teaching. Readings focused on ethics and on deist views of the universe authored by a variety of authors. The quality of Smith's mind was widely recognized. He received honorary D.D. degrees from Oxford and Aberdeen in 1759 and from Dublin in 1763. In 1768 he was elected a member of the American Philosophical Society. "During the Stamp Act crisis and the early years of the American Revolution, Smith favored the broadening of colonial liberties, but decried the tendency to turbulence and upheaval. His printed essays called for caution grounded in colonial self-interest. Because Pennsylvania patriots suspected Smith of Loyalist sympathies, the new state government did not name him either as a trustee or the head of the University of the State of Pennsylvania when they created this institution in 1779. Instead this new institution was headed by John Ewing. Smith remained Provost of a diminished College of Philadelphia until 1791 when the College was united with the University of the State of Pennsylvania to form the University of Pennsylvania. "During the 1780s, Smith moved to Maryland. Here he founded Washington College as a nondenominational college with a curriculum similar to the courses he had instituted at the College of Philadelphia. In 1785 he worked on the American prayerbook. Long involved in ecclesiastical disputes, especially the controversy over whether or not to appoint an American bishop, Smith presided over the 1780 convention that created the new diocese of Maryland. He was elected, but never consecrated as Maryland's first bishop" (University of Pennsylvania Archives). Adams 196b. Evans 14459. Hildeburn 3288. Sabin 84651.

      London: F. Newbery, 1775. Octavo, folding frontispiece map and five plates, leaf D2 is a cancel as usual; a very good copy in modern polished light tan calf. First edition, the earliest account of any Antarctic exploration. This is the first full account of Cook's second voyage to have been published, a surreptitious narrative that preceded the official account by some eighteen months.Although published anonymously, this is known to have been the work of John Marra, a Cook regular who was also to be an Australian First Fleeter. As early as September 1775 Cook was aware of the authorship: he had asked the gunner Anderson whether he had written the journal, and Anderson had convinced Marra to come forward. Amazingly, Johann Forster, the controversial naturalist of the second voyage, assisted in getting the book ready for the press (see Kroepelien, 809).The second voyage marked the first crossing of the Antarctic Circle, and Marra's book thus contains 'the first... firsthand account of the Antarctic regions...' (Rosove, Antarctica, 1772-1922). The engravings include the earliest Antarctic landscape, thirty-eight pages of text deal with the Antarctic visit, and the main map shows the passage of Cook's two ships to the high southern latitudes.Although Marra was aboard the Resolution, he also gives an account of the voyage of the Adventure during the period when the two ships were separated, including mention of the time the Adventure spent on the Tasmanian coast. 'A rare work... it contains details of many events not recorded in the official account, and a preface recording the causes which led Banks and his staff to withdraw from the expedition at the last moment. Accordingly it is a vital second voyage item...' (Davidson).Marra (sometimes Mara) was an Irish sailor who had first sailed with Cook on the last leg of the Endeavour voyage, joining the crew in Batavia. He twice attempted to jump ship during the second voyage, the second time swimming desperately for shore as the Resolution left Tahiti. This latter unsuccessful attempt at desertion was only lightly punished by Cook, who mused in his journal that any man without 'friends or connections to confine him to any part of the world' could not 'spend his days better than at one of those isles where he can injoy all the necessaries and some of the luxuries of life in ease and Plenty.' (Beaglehole, Journals, II, p. 404). Although Marra protested that he foresaw no career for himself in the Navy, he would go on to be a gunner's mate on HMS Sirius, flagship of the First Fleet. He does not appear to have mended his ways, and is reported as having been 'lost in the bush for three days on the north shore of Port Jackson in November 1789...' (Keith Vincent Smith, Tupaia's Sketchbook).

        A Remarkable Massachusetts Newspaper published the weeks after "The shot heard round the world" and 11 days before the Battle of Bunker Hill and features a rarely-published attack on Thomas Gage: "?Did they not murder 8 innocent inoffensive men at Lexington, and number more at Concord?" Chock full of content including one Dr. Joseph Warren last letters before Bunker Hill

      Cambridge, June 8, 1775. 9.75" x 15.75". "The June 6, 1775 issue of The New-England Chronicle or Essex Gazette (Cambridge: Samuel and Ebenezer Hall), 4 pages, 9.75"" x 15.75"". Light scattered foxing, partial separations at folds, some reinforced with glassine, else good condition.Page one features a reprint of the second installment of The Crisis, an English newspaper printed from 1775 to 1776 that voiced strong solidarity with the revolutionary movement in America and levelled savage attacks on the character of George III. Likely authored by pamphleteer William Moore and historian Philip Thicknesse, the paper ran through 91 issues through October 1776. The conclusion of the present installment, prior to a lengthy poem, reads: ""His Majesty, his minions, and his instruments of slaughter, are now safe, in robbing the people of their property, by shameful and iniquitous taxes in time of peace; safe in their subversion of the protestant religion; safe and successful in their cruel plan for starving the honest and industrious inhabitants, and destroying the trade of the town of Boston, in America, and the commerce of England; safe so far in their attempt to destroy the lives, rights, liberties, and privileges of millions; I say they are safe, in all these violations of, and depredations on our national security, and natural rights, because we are tame."" The authors, who desired a solution to the colonial problem within the context of the British Empire, were cool to the news of the Declaration of Independence, and ceased publishing the paper soon thereafter.Page two opens with a quite rare and scathing attack on General Thomas Gage, signed in type, ""MASSACHUSETTENSIS,"" the pen name employed by Loyalist Daniel Leonard (1740-1829) in his two year battle of essays with John Adams (who employed the nom de plume of ""NOVANGULS"") written between 1774 and 1775. However this series of essays ceased in April 1775 just as hostilities broke out at Lexington and Concord. The present essay, addressed ""To the perfidious, the truce-breaking, THOMAS GAGE"", appears to have been written by another individual intent on using Leonard's pen name in jest. The attack, which had been printed in Benjamin Edes' Boston Gazette (now printed in Watertown after the publisher fled Boston) on June 5, accuses Gage of a number of crimes, and reads in very small part: ""What original law of nature are you not daily breaking? What bod of civil society are you not dissolving or attempting to dissolve? Is it a crime to commit murder? Is it a crime to steal and plunder? And have you not owned that you attempted to destroy our property? And has it not been proved that by your troops you ravaged our houses? Have not your troops (send with orders to steal, rob and murder) fulfilled as much of your INFERNAL plan as was in your power? ?" Did they not murder 8 innocent inoffensive men at Lexington, and number more at Concord?"" This is a very rare edition of this essay. Beyond its publication in this edition, and the previous day by Edes in Watertown, we have sourced no other editions of this virulent attack on Gage. Page two also notes a list naming the delegates attending the Second Continental Congress, which had convened in Philadelphia on May 10, 1775, less than a month after Lexington and Concord. The list notes that George Washington was attending as a delegate from Virginia. (Of course he arrived in Philadelphia donning in his Virginia regimentals, and on June 15, he would be appointed Commander-in-Chief of the newly-created Continental Army). The third page contains the complete text of a very late letter from Dr. Joseph Warren who would die in action at the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775. Dated ""In Provincial Congress, Watertown, June 1, 1775,"" the letter exonerates ""Mr. Stephen Higginson"" for ""Questions asked him before the House of Commons of Great-Britain, &c. beg leave to report --- That they have critically examined that Matter, and are of Opinion , that the Indention of said Higginson in those Answers were friendly to the Inhabitants of Salem and Marblehead, and to the Colonies in general, and that he ought to be honorably acquitted by this Congress, and recommend to the Favor of the Public."" Below Warren's letter are several advertisements in which the subscribers attest their own loyalty to the rebel cause, including the Reverend Samuel Dana who writes from Groton, on May 22, in which he begs forgiveness ""of all such for whatever I have said or done, that had the least Tendency to the Injury of my Country, assuring them that it is my full Purpose... to unite with them, in all those laudable and fit Measures, that have been recommended by the Continental and Provincial Congresses, for the Salvation of this Country..."" Other news on page three include reports of troops assembling in New York preparing to march to Boston; the execution of ""Two tory Negroes"" in Newport, Rhode Island; a report on the festivities in Boston held in honor of the birthday of George III, ""celebrated by the Sons of Tyranny in Boston""; a plan by the New York Provincial Congress to capture the fortresses of Ticonderoga and Crown Point (as well as a similar resolve by the Connecticut Assembly to do the same); and a detailed account of what must have been the first prisoner exchange held between the rebels and the regulars under Thomas Gage. Despite the inflamed passions on both sides, the preliminary meetings between American and British officers prior to the formal exchange, was ""truly cordial and affectionate."" (It must be remembered many of these officers were comrades-in-arms during the French and Indian War). The fourth pages reprints two intercepted letters from the last civilian governor of Massachusetts, Thomas Hutchinson to Francis Bernard, one dating from 1770, soon after the Boston Massacre, in which he berates the likes of Samuel Adams and Joseph Warren and expresses the growing consensus that ""nothing but sharp external force will bring Boston into a state of sue subordination... Until government in England appears to be in earnest, the friends of government dare not shew themselves among us. It is possible when they know they can be supported, they may appear more numerous than the sons of liberty now imagine..."" The second letter, written in March 1773, Hutchinson muses about ways to rid Boston of the town meeting, which he found a continual annoyance: ""Is there any way of compelling Boston to be a corporation by depriving them of their present privileges, and not suffering any acts of the Town? The Charter of New York City might be a good pattern. Can no restraint be laid on the other Towns from acting an any other affairs than such as immediately concern them respectively."""
