Printed by C. Say, in Newgate-Street; And Sold by W. Bristow, London, 1760. [ii], 220 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Surinam. Muller suggests that this scandalous pamphlet was issued by the descendants of a certain J. Clifford, in order to finally obtain abolition of a sentence pronounced on Clifford in Jan. 1692 by the council of Surinam for mutiny, condemning him to be hanged. The sentence was mitigated to 7 years' imprisonment and at last entirely remitted. The pamphlet is strongly biased against the Dutch, but also provides a wealth of information on the internal affairs of Surinam in the last years of the seventeenth century. Uncommon.
