Broadside, approx. 10-1/2 x 9 inches. Tipped at the left edge to a May 13, 1802 issue of the Independent Chronicle. News of the Treaty of Amiens Reaches America. toned Item #324548
The broadside continues in two columns below praising the treaty as is "disarms a war-faction in America of their last hope of involving [the] United States in a controversy with France and an alliance with Britain! The wretches who 'prayed for war' are baffled in their expectations! and the enemies of our Government are defeated in their projects ... The opposers of the Federal Government are now appalled; they are divested of their last means to excite alarms among the American Citizens from Plots and Conspiracies against our Government ... Bostonians, we trust will not send members into our State Legislature to commence War against the Federal Government..."
