Scope and Content
Copies of letters addressed to the Printer, to Lord North, to the King, etc., signed "An Englishman," "A Friend to the Government," "One Million of Loyal Faithful Englishmen," etc., on topics regarding the church, unrest in America, and other affairs of the day. The letters in this copybook are dated September 28, 1774 to July 31, 1775. Inserted in the copybook is a letter signed W. Carpenter (no location or date) which appears to be from a later date. A note with the copybook indicates there is a second book with entries from Apr. 1772 to Sept. 1774 to the "Printer of the Gazetteer". The current location of the second copybook was unknown at the time of purchase.
