Comments

Handsome copy of this spurious Revolutionary pamphlet. "Of this oration, [never delivered], there was no Philadelphia edition [in spite of its being indicated by title-page]; it was, in fact a London forgery designed to show that the colonies were bent on independence" (Howes A72). Sabin 344.
