The second printing of this privately published work, criticizing General Howe’s conduct of the war in America, 1775-78. Both editions appear to have come from the private press of antiquary George Allan; this edition is printed on paper which is watermarked "1819". This version seems to have appeared in some larger work, from the pagination and the title heading "Miscellanies". This copy has a notation on the flyleaf in the hand of John Carter Brown librarian Lawrence C. Wroth, and appears to be a deaccessioned JCB duplicate. Relatively scarce, with only a few copies of either edition recorded by the ESTC. This is the only copy that appears to have been on the market, last appearing in a Goodspeed's catalog in 1972.
