A Reply to the Observations of Lieut. Gen. Sir William Howe, On a Pamphlet, Entitled Letters to a Nobleman: In Which His Misrepresentations are Detected, and Those Letters are Supported, by a Variety of New Matter and Argument. To Which is Added An Appendix
London: Printed for G. Wilkie, 1780. First edition. original gray wrappers. Spine a bit cocked, missing paper at ends, wrappers a little foxed, interior fine. Octavo. During the British occupation of Philadelphia in 1777-1778 Galloway was a ?Superintendent? and Loyalist. In this volume he replies to General Howe?s Observations, and elaborates how Howe could and should have won the war. Galloway counters Howe?s claim that he was forced to fight in forest by pointing out that in many place more than three quarter of the land and at a minimum two thirds of the land in question was cleared farm land. Even though Galloway sounds hostile there is important information and details on the Revolution, the nature of the countryside and more [Howes G48. Sabin 26443].
