PREFACE 



In this fifth volume of the AMERICAN BIBLIOGRAPHY the literary record enters a period 
distinctively marked in character from what had been its prevailing characteristics up to this 
time. Heretofore the periods of growth into a national literature had been distinctively relig- 
ious, and dominated by individuals, who impressed upon its character the stamp of their indi- 
viduality, in the manner in which we are accustomed to measure the growth of all literatures by 
the dominant literary figure of its time. We now enter upon a period of a complete and radical 
change in its character, now distinctively political, in which the intellectual effort of the best 
minds in the Colonies sinks into the anonymity of hazardous political discussion, or into the 
work of governing bodies engaged in the common interests of a people in a cause for a vital prin- 
ciple of government. It is impossible for one to make a close study of the printed acts and 
works of these various governing bodies, whether in Committee, Legislature, or Congress, and 
not be impressed by the high principles and lofty spirit which animated the writers. They are 
not written in the heat of passion, but are evidently the work of calm, clear-headed, high-thinking 
men, who moved deliberately, weighed the consequences of each act, and after determining a line 
of conduct pursued it unflinchingly to the end. In the rapid growth of the Colonies from their 
small beginnings to their flourishing state in wealth and population, which the British govern- 
ment eyed only as a source of revenue for them to squander through a weak king, they saw the 
distinguishing hand of Heaven, and it impressed them with the belief that no design formed 
against them could prosper. Their whole aim, at first, was to obtain their object by peaceful 
retaliatory measures, and to prevent bloodshed ; to oppose British pretensions on British prin- 
ciples ; and they were prepared to thresh the questions at issue out in the public forum of 
political discussion. 

The same fatality which led the British ministry to pass the Stamp-Act, led them to the 
passage of the Act for blocking up the harbor of Boston an Act which knit the Colonies 
together into a closer bond than any previous event in their history. They realised their partici- 
pation in events which should be considered equally culpable with Boston in the destruction of 
tea in December, 1773. Philadelphia had turned away from its harbor in January, 1774, the tea- 
ship sent there ; New York had done the same in April ; and October witnessed the firing of both 
ship and cargo in the harbor of Annapolis. Heretofore they had been Colonies with separate 



viii PREFACE 

interests, now they saw in the action of the British ministry only a revengeful measure which, 
unless resisted, might befall every seaport town in the Colonies, and they made the cause of 
Boston their own. This common feeling being well expressed in Virginia by an act, unprece- 
dented in her history, setting apart the first of June, 1774, the date of the enactment of the 
Boston Port-Bill, as a day of public fasting, humiliation and prayer. 

While the other Colonies were wondering what new form of ministerial arrogance was 
being prepared to force them into submission, New England, stunned by the blow which 
threatened to destroy its chief city and the centre of its learning, wealth and population during 
its development, reviewed their course during the one hundred and fifty years of colonization, 
and asked themselves the question, in what way had they changed that they should now be 
regarded by Great Britain as a conquered people upon whom tribute should be laid ; and could 
not find in their Charters any provision which allowed them to be taxed without their consent, 
and none which treated of them as serfs upon a kingly estate. As the only episode in her history 
equal to the arbitrary action of the ministry. They reprinted Increase Mather's Narrative of the 
miseries of New-England, during the arbitrary government of Sir Edmund Andros, and recalled 
how this had been quickly ended by their petition to the good King George. Reprinted Elijah's 
mantle, in which the great end and interest New England should strive for was declared by four 
of its greatest ministers : Jonathan Mitchel, John Higginson, William Stoughton, and Increase 
Mather, in apostolic succession ; and saw that, as a people, they had not wavered in their faith. 
Twice reprinted Thomas Prince's The Providences of God in, 1746, which recalled the time when 
the best blood, and the treasure, of New England had been freely given to uphold the power of 
Great Britain in the French and Indian War ; and which now did double duty in encouraging 
and animating the people to put their trust in God under the distresses of the rigorous execution 
of the Boston Port-Bill. They asked these questions of themselves and could find no answering 
reasons for the changed policy of the British government toward them. And, at this late day, 
one may still wonder in what way had the people of New England wandered from the straight, 
if narrow way, their leaders had marked out for them to follow from the first. When we com- 
pare the earliest printed document, The Oath of a free man, with another Oath taken by the free- 
men of New Hampshire in 1776, we find the same true ring in both : the same steadfastness in 
the truth as they saw the light ; the same trust in God ; the same personal honor and honesty 
with man. 

When the tension in the Colonies had become strained almost to bursting out into open 
rebellion against the cruel edicts of the British ministry against the town of Boston, the needed 
relief from the strain came in the arrival of General Thomas Gage, who had been commissioned 
Governor of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, as a fitting instrument to rigorously enforce them. 
The new Governor began his task by addressing to his constituents, in humble imitation of George 
the third when he ascended the throne, A Proclamation for the encouragement of piety, and virtue, 
and for preventing and punishing of vice, profanity and immorality. This pronunciamento was 
evidently intended more for the eyes of the king at St. James's than for the betterment of condi- 
tions in the Colony. It deceived noone ; and the native sense of humor was quick to perceive its 
weaknesses. Trumbull, Freneau, and others of less poetical ability, made it the subject for their 
satire : parodied his aping of kingly manners ; his assumption of superior virtue ; his erroneous 
ideas of the moral condition of the inhabitants of the Colony he was sent to govern ; and openly 
derided its real animus the hidden stinsr in its tail, which was aimed at sedition. It made him 
a common target for wit and ridicule ; and later, when he had fortified himself in Boston, and by 
his aggressive acts of actual warfare against the people he was sent to govern had precipitated 
hostilities which forever prevented a restoration of harmony between Great Britain and the 



PREFACE 

Colonies, they formed a cordon around him, and by withholding all supplies, placed him in the 
ludicrous position of being himself shut up in the town he was sent to blockade, and from which 
he was only relieved by the arrival of General William Howe. It used to be customary in Mass- 
achusetts for elderly gentlemen to smile politely, and for school boys to openly grin, when the 
name of General Thomas Gage was mentioned ; and, unless improved methods of teaching have 
banished the study of her glorious revolutionary history, they probably still do so there. 

Following the plan of peaceful opposition, which had been successful in the agitation of 
the Stamp- Act, on the initiative of the House of Representatives of Massachusetts Bay, a Gen- 
eral Congress of all the Colonies was called to meet at Philadelphia on the fifth of September, 
1774, to take such action as would express the sentiments of the American Colonies on the 
measures instituted by the British government against them. In most of the Colonies who 
should represent them was determined by their known position upon public questions, which 
made the action of the representatives from twelve of the Colonies who met in General Congress 
on that day practically unanimous. As the result of their deliberations, they formed An Associa- 
tion, or solemn league and covenant not to import goods from Great Britain, and not to buy any 
goods which shall be imported from thence until their grievances were redressed, and framed 
A List of Grievance! ; formulated with the greatest ability and judgment, a Bill of Rights ; pre- 
pared An Address to tlie people of Great Britain ; together with A Memorial to their fellow citizens 
in the British American Colonies ; and An Address to the inhabitants of the Province of Quebec. In 
all this they acted with the same calm judgment and moderation, and pursued the same course 
which had formerly been successful, and which they now confidently believed would decide the 
issues in the interests of the Colonies. Never before, probably, were the actions of a deliberative 
body more anxiously awaited, or more cordially approved. The intensity of the general interest 
in their proceedings being shown by nearly every press in the Colonies printing the Extracts from 
the Votes and proceedings of the American Continental Congress. 

The election for representatives in New York to attend the General Congress at Philadel- 
phia, had been of its usual stormy nature, and foreshadowed a controversy in which, as in the 
Stamp-Act controversy, the friends of American liberty found arrayed against them an opposition 
made up of members of the Church of England. In fact, in its controversial phases, the struggle 
for civil liberty in the American Colonies assumes something of the nature of religious warfare, 
in which the dissenting churches are opposed by the established Church of England. This oppo- 
sition, which was known as the tory element, embraced some men of distinguished ability in their 
callings who, while not numerous, were offensively active and had to be reckoned with. Accord- 
ing to reports then current, on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, this tory opposition, which cen- 
tered in New York, and had for its means of expression the printing-office of James Rivington, 
was liberally subsidized from the secret service fund of the British government. The call for a 
General Congress precipitated a spirited controversy, which was carried on for the most part 
anonymously, for party spirit ran high, and was begun by Myles Cooper, then president of King's 
College who, under the signature of A North-American, issued through Rivington's press a pam- 
phlet entitled : The American querist, in which he proposed, in the Socratic method, some ques- 
tions relative to the present disputes between Great Britain and the American Colonies. It 
served the purpose of thoroughly exasperating the friends of American liberty, and was publicly 
burnt by the Sons of Liberty : according to the printer, in a second edition, because "it con- 
tained some queries which they cannot, and others they will not answer." The Congress having 
in the meanwhile met, Mr. Cooper followed his first venture into the field of controversy with an 
anonymous pamphlet, from Rivington's press, which was supposed to be written by, and was 
reprinted in London as the work of A. W. Farmer, of whom we shall presently treat, entitled : 



PREFACE 

A friendly address to all reasonable Americans, on the subject of our political confusions, in which he 
pointed out the consequences which must necessarily follow violent opposition to the king's 
troops, and a general non-importation, in a way which the London Magazine considered very 
friendly to government, and inimical to the pretended American's brethren. To this Philip Liv- 
ingston made a spirited reply, under the signature of A Citizen, in a pamphlet entitled : The 
Other side of the question : or a defence of the liberties of North America ; as did also, anony- 
mously, General Charles Lee, in a pamphlet, addressed to the people of America, entitled : 
Strictures on a pamphlet, entitled, a "Friendly address to all reasonable Americans," which was 
printed by Bradford's press in Philadelphia. To this, Henry Barry, an officer of the British army 
then stationed at Boston, replied, anonymously, through the press of John Howe, in a pamphlet 
entitled : The General attacked by a subaltern : or the Strictures on the Friendly address examined, 
in which a refutation of the principles advanced by General Lee was attempted. In a more per- 
sonal manner, Jonathan Boucher, probably through Rivington's press, anonymously addressed 
A Letter from a Virginian, to the members of the Congress to be field at Philadelphia, on the first of 
September, 1774, in which he endeavored to dissuade the Congress from adopting non-importation 
and non-exportation agreements. In November, 1774, Rivington printed the first of a series of 
pamphlets which were signed A. W. Farmer, the initials being designed to convey the idea that 
they were written by a farmer of Westchester County in New York. These were later acknowl- 
edged to have been written by Samuel Seabury who, by Scotch ordination, afterwards became the 
first bishop of Connecticut. The first publication of the supposed farmer, addressed to farmers, 
and intended to arouse the unrelenting opposition of the agricultural class against the measures 
proposed by the Congress, is entitled : Free thoughts, on the proceedings of the Continental Con- 
gress, held at Philadelphia, Sept. 4, 1774 ; in it he proposed to exhibit their errors, confute their 
reasonings, lay open to the plainest understandings the fatal tendency of their non-importation 
and non-consumption measures, and to point out the only means for preserving and securing the 
present happy constitution. Alexander Hamilton, then a youth of seventeen years of age ? 
directed public attention to his precocious ability by a reply to this, under the signature of A 
Friend to America, entitled : A Full vindication of the measures of the Congress, from the calum- 
nies of their enemies, in which he designed to expose the sophistry, confute the cavils, detect the 
artifices, and ridicule the wit, of the supposed farmer, for the benefit of the farmers in New 
York in particular, and the inhabitants of America in general. Within two weeks Rivington 
printed the second of the supposed farmer's pamphlets, the salable quality of whose pseudonym 
he recognises by placing it upon the title page, entitled : The Congress canvassed : or, an exam- 
ination into the conduct of the delegates at their grand convention, held in Philadelphia, Sept. 1, 
1774. This he craftily addressed to the merchants of New York as in their interests. In Decem- 
ber,Rivington printed a third pamphlet by the supposed farmer, intended as a reply to Alexander 
Hamilton, entitled : A View of tlie controversy between Great Britain and her Colonies, in which 
he included a mode for finally and effectually determining their present disputes, and preventing 
all future contentions. It is interesting to note the many different ways the clergy of the Church 
of England had for effectually settling the present and all future disputes between Great Britain 
and the Colonies. Besides those, like the above, modestly and diffidently advanced in the Colo- 
nies, the Reverend Dean of Gloucester also hesitatingly proposed five more different ways in one 
pamphlet, which was reprinted in Philadelphia ; and, strangely, none of them was finally found 
to be the right way. In January, 1775, Rivington printed a fourth pamphlet by the supposed 
farmer, which gave no hint as to its authorship, but was afterward acknowledged by Samuel 
Seabury as his work, entitled : An Alarm to tlie Legislature of the Province of New-York, occa- 
sioned by the present political disturbances, in North America, which was addressed to the General 



PREFACE 

Assembly, then in session, with the design of influencing legislation. Early in the year, Rivington 
also printed another anonymous attack upon the work of the Congress entitled : What think ye 
of the Congress now f in which an attempt was made to cloud the issues by an enquiry as to how 
far the Americans are bound to abide by, and execute the decisions of the Congress. This was 
written by the Reverend Thomas Bradbury Chandler, who had previously fostered the idea of an 
American episcopate. In it he incorporated, A Plan of a proposed union between Great Britain 
and the Colonies, which Joseph Galloway laid before the Congress and which they had so com- 
pletely rejected as not even to give it a place in their proceedings. Galloway who had previously 
issued, anonymously, through Rivington's press, A Candid examination of the mutual claims of 
Great Britain, and the Colonies : with a plan of accomodalion on constitutional principles, which the 
Monthly Review ascribed to the effects of illiberal motives, and unworthy passions, made the 
rejection of his plan an excuse for becoming a renegade to his country's cause in fact, as he had 
been before in heart. To the supposed farmer's third pamphlet, Alexander Hamilton made reply, 
under the signature of A Sincere Friend to America, in a pamphlet entitled : The Farmer 
refuted : or, a more impartial and comprehensive view of the dispute between Great Britain and the 
Colonies, intended as a further vindication of the Congress. Isaac Wilkins, who had issued through 
Rivington's press, under the signature of A Country Gentleman, Short advice to the Counties of 
New-York ; and who was by many supposed to be the anonymous Westchester farmer, wrote a 
reply to Hamilton, the title of which was to be : The Republican dissected : or, the anatomy of an 
American whiff, which was advertised by Rivington as in press in April, 1775. Besides those 
here enumerated, Rivington had been industriously making other anonymous additions to the tory 
issues of his press, some serious ; some jocose, which have maintained their anonymity to the 
present day, and which were equally, if not more, offensive. The last sheet of A Reply to An 
Address to the author of A Candid examination, &c., which Joseph Galloway had written, was 
hardly off the press when, exasperated beyond endurance, the friends of American liberties could 
no longer forbear their resentment, and a party, headed by Isaac Sears, the leader of the Sons of 
Liberty in New York, raided the printing-office, destroyed the printed sheets and manuscript of 
Wilkins' work, and much more of the printer's property. Galloway's pamphlet was not pub- 
lished, by Hugh Gaine, until about a year after. Isaac Wilkins fled the country, a reward of one 
hundred pounds for his capture hastening his departure, and was thereafter a pensioner of the Brit- 
ish government. Rivington, himself, was compelled to make public apology, and pledge to so con- 
duct his press as not to give further offence ; to sign the Association of non-importation, and 
declare his unalterable resolution rigidly to conform to its provisions ; in addition to which he 
humbly entreated the pardon of those whom he had offended by his ill-judged publications, in 
four successive issues of his paper. Notwithstanding this abject submission to the will of the 
people, the political views of Rivington's New-York Gazetteer continued to give proof that it was 
published in the interests of the British government and not of the Colonies ; color to which was 
given when the words " open and uninfluenced " were dropped from the heading. As the views 
of his paper became more and more obnoxious, the shafts of ridicule were directed against the 
printer by the satirists. On the 5th of November, 1775, some forty of his subscribers in Balti- 
more addressed to Rivington a printed circular ordering him not to send any more copies of his 
paper to them, and strongly intimating that if it was printed in Baltimore he would receive a 
coat of tar and feathers like the sample they enclosed. On the 27th of November, his printing- 
office was again raided ; this time the press was destroyed, and his types carried away and melted 
into bullets. Rivington left the city, for the pension which seems to have been awaiting all 
actively offensive tories in England, and when he returned upon the occupancy of the city by 
the British army, bore with him the somewhat empty honor of King's Printer for New York. 



xii PREFACE 

In December, 1774, there appeared in the Massachusetts Gazette : and Boston Post-boy, a 
series of seventeen political essays, extending in publication to April, 1775, under the signature 
of Massachusettensis, a Native of New England, addressed to the inhabitants of the Province of 
Massachusetts Bay, which attracted wide attention from the ingenuity of their arguments, and 
the brilliant and polished style of the writer. They took the side of the British government 
against the Colonies, and Rivington, who collected and published some of them in New York, 
gave them the title : The Origin of the American contest with Great -Britain, or the present politi- 
cal state of tfie Massachusetts-Bay in general, and the town of Boston in particular, exhibiting the 
rise and progress of the disordered state of that country. The anonymous author was long sup- 
posed to be Jonathan Sewall.the King's Attorney General for the Colony, but is now known to be 
Daniel Leonard. They called for reply from no ordinary mind, and John Adams, on his return 
from the Continental Congress at Philadelphia, undertook to answer and expose the misrepresen- 
tations and falacious reasonings contained in them, in a series of essays under the signature of 
Novanglui. It was an intellectual debate in which the combatants were well-matched ; and so 
late as the year 1819, when both were reprinted together in Boston, the North American Review 
said : both are admirably adapted to their object, and cannot be read without emotion even now. 

Events of great importance to the Colonies followed each other in quick succession 
during the year 1775. The battles of Lexington and Concord, in April, in which the British 
troops were the aggressors, were followed, in June, by that of Charlestown, at Bunker's Hill ; in 
each of which the physically vanquished were the moral victors. With the aid of a chronological 
arrangement the stirring news can be followed from city to city, see it certified by the Committee 
of Correspondence in each place, and the clattering messenger speeding away southward until it 
reached the capitol of Virginia in eight days after the event. By the same agencies a constitutional 
post office service was established, by Benjamin Franklin, in opposition to the British post office 
system, which effectually cut off all government revenues from that source. In May, the Con- 
gress met for the second time and, in view of the alarming situation of public affairs, one of its 
first acts was to direct that Thursday, the twentieth of July, be observed by all the Colonies as a 
day of humiliation, fasting and prayer. The day was generally observed, and the occasion made 
memorable and lasting by many of the sermons being printed. On the sixth of July, they 
addressed A Declaration, setting forth the causes and necessity of their taking up arms, which was 
drawn up by John Dickinson ; and followed this, two days later, by An Address, To the inhabit- 
ants of Great-Britain, prepared by Richard Henry Lee ; and An Address, To the people of Ireland. 
The addresses were replied to in England by Mrs. Catharine Macaulay, in what was considered a 
masterly manner ; and, anonymously, by John Lind ; and by Sir John Dalrymple. The latter's 
performance being written, printed, and liberally distributed in Great Britain and America at the 
instance and expense of the British government ; and was, according to the Monthly Review, 
well calculated by inflaming misrepresentations and invectives to aggravate the evils, and to 
exasperate the people of Great Britain against their brethren in America. That they did not rep- 
resent the true public sentiment, or the business interests of Great Britain, is shown by the atti- 
tude of the cities of Bristol and London ; and by a weekly series of political essays, modeled 
upon the more celebrated Letters of Junius, published from January, 1775, to June, 1776, 
entitled : The Crisis, which assailed the king, his court, and ministry, the Church, and the Par- 
liament, for their stand against the American Colonies, with a boldness of denunciation, and an 
oflensiveness of statements, far exceeding anything printed in the Colonies. 

The unsettled conditions of government in the several Colonies also engaged the attention 
of the Congress, who advised that they consider their present governments abrogated by the hos- 
tile acts of Great Britain, and empowered them to call a full and free representation of the people, 



PREFACE xiii 

and establish such a form of government as will in their judgment best produce the happiness of 
the people, and secure peace and good order during the continuance of the disputes between 
Great Britain and the Colonies. In this, independence was only partially aimed at ; but it appears 
that so early as August, 1775, it was currently reported in New York, that the Congress had 
passed a resolve that unless American grievances were redressed by the first of March, 1776, the 
Colonies would be declared free and independent of Great Britain ; and so insistent had this 
rumor been that Henry Remsen, deputy chairman of the New York Committee, publicly denied 
it over his signature, and declared the report false and malicious and its author an enemy to his 
country. This attitude expressed the feeling of the small, conservative element, which was well- 
represented by the Reverend John J. Zubly of Georgia, composed of men who were willing to go 
with the public sentiment of their Colonies to any length short of absolute independence. In Jan- 
uary, 1776, there was issued, anonymously, from the press of Robert Bell, in Philadelphia, a 
pamphlet entitled : Common sense, which was addressed to the inhabitants of America, on the 
subjects of government in general, and the English Constitution in particular ; on monarchy and 
hereditary succession ; and on the present state, and ability of America. Not promising subjects 
of popular interest, as we now regard them ; but this work was so thoroughly in touch with the 
spirit of the times, and appeared so opportunely at the psychological moment when the pub- 
lic mind was in a receptive mood to its ideas, the two chief essentials to popularity that it 
was easily the most popular work issued in the American Colonies up to this time. Not less 
than twelve editions were printed, and the sales soon reached one hundred thousand copies. It 
advocated independency. And it crystalized a wavering and unsteady public sentiment into 
form ; smoothed away difficulties; familiarised and accustomed the public mind to the idea; 
and gave the people the shibboleth of complete independence of Great Britain, as no other agency 
had done or promised to do. The Legislature of Pennsylvania voted its author five hundred 
pounds in appreciation of its value to the cause of American liberty. And it achieved for 
Thomas Paine a fame which will endure so long as the Republic lives. Its powerful effect upon 
the public mind was not underrated by the enemies to independency in any form ; and there soon 
appeared from Bell's press, under the signature of Candidus, a reply, entitled : Plain truth, also 
addressed to the inhabitants of America, wherein its author endeavored to show that American 
independence was illusory, ruinous and impracticable ; that America had no such real powers ; 
and that reconciliation with Great Britain was the only safe, honorable and expedient course. 
The authorship has been attributed to various persons, and is here given to the Reverend William 
Smith, D. D. It was written with such outrageous zeal, and contained so many scurrilous reflec- 
tions upon the favorers of American independence, as to defeat its own object ; and drew from 
the Monthly Review the statement that a government of the tyrannical nature some have chosen 
to represent the Congress would not have permitted its publication if they aimed at separation. 
The Reverend Charles Inglis, also a clergyman of the Church of England, issued from the press 
of James Humphreys, junior, of Philadelphia, under the signature of An American, a pamphlet 
entitled : The True interest of America impartially stated, in certain strictures on a pamphlet 
entitled Common sense. And Rusticus, the well-known pseudonym of John Dickinson, replied 
with some of his old fire to William Smith, in Remarks on a pamphlet entitled Plain truth, which 
was printed by John Dun lap. 

Convinced, by the hostile action of the king and his ministry in withdrawing from the 
Colonies the protection of the crown ; denying their right, and rejecting with contempt their 
Petition for a redress of grievances ; and allowing no alternative short of abject submission ; 
that any further endeavors to restore peace and security under British rule would be useless, the 
Congress then determined upon independence, by declaring the United Colonies free and inde- 



PREFACE 

pendent States. This plan had been proposed to the Congress by the Virginia Convention held 
May 15, 1776 ; and it was fitting that the honor of formulating their determination should be 
given to a representative from that Colony, and Thomas Jefferson, one of the ablest of the 
younger members of the Congress, was given this task. In Congress, July 4, 1776, was promul- 
gated A Declaration by the Representative! of tlie United 8tate of America, in General Congrets 
atsembled, greatest of human documents, reverenced by its friends, admired by its foes, ever 
written by man. This divinely inspired document has all the majestic flow of utterance, sublimity 
of thought and expression, grandeur and breadth of a great epic. Time has only added to its 
greatness as its world-wide influences have become more and more apparent in the destinies of 
nations. This important step taken, the Congress strengthened their determination with the 
Articlet of confederation and perpetual union, between the States. 

The scarcity of paper for writing and printing during the revolutionary period occasioned 
great inconvenience in all the Colonies. In some of them the newspapers and other periodical 
publication! were forced to suspend, and others were reduced in size, from this cause. Legisla- 
tive action was required to secure for the paper mills in operation the necessary materials for 
paper-making ; and the newspapers generally contained the printer's offer of cash for rags, which 
were an interchangeable commodity at the mills for paper. The need of linen cloth in the hos- 
pital service of the armies, made the use of coarser grades a necessity, and the paper generally 
made at the mills was of a poor quality. Even in Pennsylvania, where paper mills were most 
numerous, the paper was of so poor a quality as to make reading difficult and at this day some- 
times uncertain. The entire country depended for its supply of paper at this time upon about ten 
paper mills in Pennsylvania one, at least, of them manufacturing a good grade of paper from 
which the Congress obtained its supply ; one mill at Norwich, Connecticut, where a superior 
quality of paper was manufactured ; one mill at Providence, Rhode Island ; and four mills at 
Milton, Massachusetts ; with such stocks of paper, principally in New York, and Charleston, as 
were on hand when non-importation began. The needs of the Congress, and of the different 
State governments, in a time when so much depended upon united action, were, necessarily, first 
to be considered. And, in the general distress from this cause, the printed broadside and 
the broadsheet became the prevailing form of literature for governments, communities and 
individuals, as the pamphlet had been in previous periods. Few large works were under- 
taken. The pamphlet literature largely related to the political relations between the two coun- 
tries, or to means and ways of defence. The almanac maker suffering most at the hands of the 
paper dealer ; such issues as have escaped the destroying hand of time being neither creditable to 
the industry, or to the art. Frequently several qualities and colors of paper would be used in 
the same work. The public, and the publisher, accepting the inevitable necessity in the spirit 
voiced by Robert Bell, of Philadelphia, who pasted in every copy of his Additions to William 
Smith's Plain truth, a slip of coarse blue-tinted paper, on which a third of the work was printed, 
this explanation : To every purchaser. The impossibility of obtaining white, constituted the law of 
necessity, for part of these Additions to appear in blue. The philosopher reacheth beyond out- 
ward appearances. The patriot sunnounteth every difficulty. And the bookseller industriously 
attempteth business agreeable to the prescriptions and decrees of the British and American laws 
of freedom concerning the liljerty of the press. 

In this connection it may not be amiss to take up with the student of bibliography the 
question of an exact description for the various forms used in the issues from the printing press 
a subject upon which there is a total absence of such essential information in all manuals of 
bibliography and library economy, and a confusing variation of opinion on technical points in 
works of more general information. There are five of these forms, in order, Broadside, Broad- 



LIST OF SUBSCRIBERS 

sheet, Tract, Pamphlet, and Book ; and the questions at issue are what constitutes each of them, 
and what is the essential difference between them, bibliographically. The single sheet of 
paper upon which the matter is imposed furnishes the basis for the description without regard to 
the size, or to the manner, whether in one, two, or more columns, in which the printed matter is 
displayed. First, the Broadside. If the printed matter is on the recto, or face, of an unfolded 
sheet, only, it is, bibliographically, a broadside, in folio, quarto, octavo, or sixteenmo size, as 
the printed sheet of paper may be. The proclamation, sheet calendar, hand bill, advertisement, 
and political squib, whose design is to be posted up for general information, are all of this 
description. Second, the Broadsheet. If the printed matter overruns the recto of an unfolded 
sheet, and the verso is also printed upon, it then becomes a broadsheet, and is bibliographically 
described as consisting of pp. (2), folio, quarto, octavo, or whatever size the single sheet of paper 
may be. The circular letter, and short political address, belong to this description. Diction- 
aries and encyclopaedias make the two terms, broadside and broadsheet, synonymous : bibliog- 
raphically they are not, being differentiated in the manner stated. Third, the Tract. If the 
single sheet is imposed in pages, and the printed matter begins and ends on a single sheet, without 
regard to the number of pages the sheet is folded into, it is a tract, genetically from the Latin 
tractatug, and its bibliographical description, in extreme, is : pp. 4, if in folio ; pp. 8, if in quarto ; 
pp. 16, if in octavo ; pp. 32, if in sixteenmo. In other words, the number of leaves in a tract 
never exceed its size in fold ; and it has no signatures. Fourth, the Pamphlet. If the printed 
matter requires two sheets folded into pages it is then a pamphlet, probably from the French, par 
un filet held together by a thread ; or, palme feuillet leaves held in the hand. Briefly, a 
pamphlet consists of from two to five printed and folded sheets stitched together. The rule being 
that a pamphlet does not exceed five printed sheets when folded in octavo. This ruling gives to 
a pamphlet, in extreme, twenty pages when printed in folio ; forty pages when printed in quarto ; 
and eighty pages when printed in octavo. After which it ceases to be a pamphlet, and is then a 
Book. Contrary to the usually accepted belief, binding does not make the book the four 
forms noted do not lose their original characters, bibliographically, when bound.

So violently in favor of toryism, that is was publicly burned by 
the Sons of Liberty. Following which Rivington inserted the 
following card in his paper: Last week the Heads of the Flat- 
bergasted Fraternity, who have lately affected to stile themselves 
the Public, in solemn conclave audited the Queries contained in 
the following Book, and on finding some they could not, and 
others they would not answer, with a Candour, Justice and De- 
corum, by which their Proceedings have ever been distinguished, 
they committed it to the Flames; in immediate consequence of 
which the Printer has been called upon by large demands for the 
Editio Altera, of this piece. When you damn the Printer, and burn 
his Pamphlet, he laughs, reprints, triumphs and fills his Pocket.

to his brethren. However, they may profit by some of his hints 
though they chuse not to follow his advice in becoming subjects 
to the will of Parliament, where they are not represented in all 
cases whatever. They would then have reason to adopt our 
author's cries in prospect of a civil war "O all pitying Heaven ! 
preserve me! preserve my friends! preserve my country!"

contract was dissolved by mutual consent, and Margaret Draper 
continued its publication in Newbury Street without imprint, but 
with the word "Draper's" above the heading until September

device of the dismembered snake and the dragon, which extended

The dragon represented Great Britain, and the snake the nine 
Colonies from New England to Georgia, and over the severed

The cut of the royal arms was displaced, with the issue of June 23d, 
by a cut of a divided snake in nine parts, underneath which was 
the motto, Unite or die. With the issue for December 15th, this 
device was altered to a united snake coiled in a double ring with 
the tail in its mouth, surrounding a column surmounted with a 
liberty cap, standing on a base labeled Magna Charta, held in its 
place by twelve arms and hands, signifying the twelve United 
Colonies. Beginning at the head, along the body of the snake was 
printed this sentiment : United now free and alive firm on this 
basis liberty shall stand and thus supported ever bless our land 
till time becomes eternity. This device was continued to the is- 
sue for August 29, 1776.

Reprinted in London this year. And, in the Memoir of his life, 
at Boston in 1825. Regarding this work the Monthly Review 
states : One peculiarly unlucky circumstance attending our 
American disputes may be added to the rest, namely, that our 
fellow-subjects there are as well read in the nature and grounds 
of civil and religious liberty as ourselves ; as appear by their late 
publications, in which they oppose British pretensions on British 
principles ; and this shrewd commentary on the Boston Port Bill 
will incline us to entertain a respectable opinion of their law 
pleaders.

This edition is without place, printer or date, but was not,

Charter would not have been made. "This unspoken Speech, 
which is attributed to the Bishop of St. Asaph, does equal honor

Bigelow thinks that Benjamin Franklin was concerned in its 
publication.

ADDRESSED TO THE PROVINCIAL CONGRESS OP SOUTH-CAROLINA, TO MEET ON 
JANUARY HTH, 1775.

THE CONSTITUTIONAL GAZETTE. To BE CONTINUED EVERY WEDNESDAY AND 
SATURDAY. No. 1. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, [ DECEMBER, 1775.] 

New-York : Printed by John Anderson, at Beekman's Slip. 1775. 4to. 
Little is known of this newspaper venture of John Anderson's. 
From the few scattering numbers known to be in existence, it is 
shown to have been commenced August 2, 1775, and continued 
certainly to June, 1776, and probably to the end of its first year, 
in July. But certainly not after the British occupancy of New 
York City in October, 1776.

These numbers of The Crisis are apparently all that were reprinted 
in the American Colonies. The original issues, printed in Lon- 
don, appeared weekly, commencing January 4, 1775, and con- 
tinuing to June 8, 1776, forming, with The Crisis Extraordinary, 
for August 9, 1775, a complete series of ninety-two numbers. 
Beginning with Number 51, for January 6, 1776, there was added 
to the heading : "during the present bloody civil war in Amer- 
ica." Its republication in the Colonies was at irregular periods, 
and in the form of a political tract. Complete series of the origi- 
nal issues, as well as of the American reprints, are of great rarity. 
The supposed author, under various signatures, is said to be Wil- 
liam Moore, author of The North Briton Extraordinary. The col- 
lection of papers constitute a remarkably severe arraignment of 
the British ministry and government, and in their boldness of at- 
tack exceed anything printed in the Colonies. While they lack 
that fine distinction, which is called Style, of their more justly 
noted precursors The Letters of Junius the papers are good 
examples of vigorous English in prose and verse, and are embel- 
lished with that appositeness of classical quotation which is one 
of the distinguishing qualities of the political pamphleteer. No. 
III. To the King, is particularly bold, and purposely offensive, 
and was declared by the Parliament to be a "false, malicious, 
seditious and treasonable libel," and ordered to be burnt by the 
common hangman on two successive days. On March 6, 1775, 
the day of execution, there was hawked about the streets of Lon- 
don a broadside, headed with a cut of hawkers crying and citizens 
buying No. 3. The Crisis, and entitled : "The Last dying speech 
of the Crisis, which is to be burned at one o'clock this day in 
Palace-Yard, Westminster, and tomorrow at two at the Royal 
Exchange, as a malicious libel against his Majesty.' This brought 
together a prodigious concourse of people who interfered and 
almost roasted the hangman on his own fire. In taking leave of 
their readers in the 90th number, the publishers say : "We now 
lay down this paper, with grateful thanks to the public, and as 
liberty and virtue have taken their flight to America, the only 
Asylum for Freemen, we are determined to follow, and not longer 
struggle in vain to animate our dastardly degenerate countrymen, 
with the noble spirit of their Forefathers."

A CANDID EXAMINATION OF THE MUTUAL CLAIMS OF GREAT-BRITAIN, AND THE

New-York: Printed by James Bimngton, M,DCC,LXXV. pp. (2), (62). 

8VO. BA. JCB. LCP. LOC. MH8. NYPL. V8L. 

Two impressions were printed this year. The first, with a list of 
errata on the verso of the title. The second, with the verso blank. 
The Lenox Collection of the New York Public Library has both 
forms. Reprinted at London in 1780. It was written before 
Galloway, who had been a speaker of the House of Assembly of 
Pennsylvania, and a member of the Continental Congress of 
1774, had openly become a renegade to his country's cause. Of 
it the Monthly Review says: "This pamphlet (anonymously 
published) has been advertised as the production of Mr. Galloway, 
and we have otherwise sufficient authority not only to ascribe it 
to that gentleman, but to consider it as the effect of illiberal 
motives and unworthy passions."

CANDID EXAMINATION OP THE MUTUAL CLAIMS AC, By THE AUTHOR OP THE 
CANDID EXAMINATION. 

New-York : Printed, by James Rivington, 1775. BA. 

This was printed by Rivington in April, 1775, but was not pub- 
lished until his return to New York in January, 1777, as appears 
from the following card in Gaine's New- York Gazette : " The 
above pamphlet was printed by James Rivington about a twelve 
month ago ; but the spirit of persecution and sedition raged so 
high at the time he dared not publish it. The last sheet had been 
scarcely struck off, when an armed inob surrounded his house and 
forcibly carried off all his types." Which were later molded into 
bullets. The Reply, forms pages 76 to 116 of the London edition 
of Galloway's Candid examination, printed in 1780.

MASSACHUSETTENSIS [Letters I, to xvn. To the inhabitants of the Province of

[Boston: Printed by Mills and Hicks, 1775.] pp. (118). 8vo. AAS. 
These political essays first appeared in The Massachusetts Gazette, 
under the signature of Massachusetteiisis. Their anonymous 
author was supposed to be Jonathan Sewell, then attorney-general 
of the king for the Province of Massachusetts Bay, but is now 
known to be Daniel Leonard. They took the side of the govern- 
ment against the Colonies, and attracted much attention by their 
ingenuity of argument, and ornamented and polished style. John 
Adams on his return from the Continental Congress at Philadel- 
phia, determined to expose the misrepresentations and fallacious 
reasonings which they contain in a series of essays under the sig- 
nature of Novanglus ; " which," says the North American Review 
for September, 1819, "are distinguished by clearness and force of 
reasoning, copiousness of illustrations, vehemence of manner, and 
occasional traits, of genuis, which remind us of Dr. Franklin. 
Both are admirably adapted to their object, and cannot be read 
without emotion even now." Reprinted at London this year ; and 
in two editions in 1776 ; with Novanglus, at Boston in 1819 ; and, 
partly, in New York, as follows :

Boston : Printed and published by Margaret Draper in Newbury Street. 

1775. fol.

the heading, by Margaret Draper until September 5th. No copies 
between 20 April, and 19 May ; or between the 7 September,

Boston : Printed by Isaiah Thomas, at the south corner of Marshall's 
Lane, leading from the Mill-Bridge into Union-Street. 1775. fol. 

The acuteness of the political crisis forced the suspension of the 
Spy in Boston with the above issue, and Thomas removed his 
press and materials to Worcester, where publication was resumed 
in May under the following title :

With the issue for August 16th the exhortation in the heading 
was dropped, and the form altered to Thomas's Massachusetts Spy

May 3d was the first printing executed in Worcester.

The New-Hampshire Gazette, or Exeter Morning chronicle : The 
New-Hampshire Gazette [State Gazette] or Exeter Circulating 
morning chronicle ; The State Journal, or, the New-Hampshire

of title, with alterations in make up, and changes in days of 
publication, took place in the course of a year from its first ap- 
pearance towards the close of this year. It appeared generally 
without imprint, but was founded, and published in this irregu- 
lar manner, by Robert Fowle, the nephew and former partner of 
Daniel Fowle, the first printer in the Province. Sometime in the 
year 1777 it was finally discontinued. Robert Fowle, who was 
a royalist, and at one time suspected of counter-feiting the cur- 
rency of the State, fled within the lines of the British army in 
New- York.

Philadelphia : Printed by Benjamin Towne, in Front-Street. [1775.] 
pp. (2), 604. 4to. 
Founded by Benjamin Towne, and continued by him, as a tri- 
weekly on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, until its publication 
ceased sometime during the year 1783. Immediately following 
the occupancy of Philadelphia by the British army, in 1777, 
publication was suspended for two weeks, and then resumed 
under the auspices of the British General. For this Towne was 
proscribed by the Legislature of Pennsylvania after the evacua- 
tion, but he professed a change, and continued to publish his 
paper, later under the title of : The Pennsylvania Evening Post, 
and public advertiser, until the year 1783.

taken in for this paper, at ten shillings per year. 1775. fol. 

Founded by James Humphreys, junior, and continued by him 
until its publication finally ceased in May, 1778. Owing to 
Humphreys pronounced British sympathies he was obliged to sus- 
pend publication with the number for the 30th of November, 
1776, and publication was not again resumed until Philadelphia 
was occupied by the British army, when it appeared with the 
changed title of: The Pennsylvania Ledger : or the weekly adver- 
tiser, but with a consecutive numbering, on the 10th October, 
1777. In December, the title was again changed to : The Pennsyl- 
vania Ledger : or the Philadelphia Market-day advertiser, and it 
was published semi-weekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Just 
before the British troops evacuated Philadelphia, with the issue 
for the 23d May, 1778, the paper was discontinued. Humphreys 
himself was declared a traitor by the State government of Penn- 
sylvania, and his property confiscated.

With the number for August 17th, the words "open and uninflu-

pressed in the paper had long been obnoxious to the friends of 
American liberty, and on the 27th of November, the printing-of- 
fice was wrecked, the press destroyed, and the types carried away, 
and afterwards melted and formed into bullets. Rivington left 
the city for England, but returned upon the occupancy of New- 
York by British soldiers, and resumed publication of his paper 
under its former title, on the 4th of October, 1777, as "King's 
Printer for New- York."

All that was published. The author's advertisement states, the 
Map of the country of the savage nations, which was intended to 
face page 72, was engraved by a gentleman residing sixty miles 
from New-York had miscarried, but would be delivered with the 
second volume gratis to subscribers, of which this volume con- 
tains a five-page list. The two maps missing from all copies of 
this work, were afterwards engraved by John Lodge, and pub- 
lished in London, May 31, 1781, and copies are sometimes found 
with these maps inserted. Although the author also states that 
the second volume -'is now in the press," no copies are known. 
The engraved pages are somewhat rudely executed by the author 
himself, and the work is seldom found in a complete state.

This is one of the two maps promised on the title page of the pre- 
ceding entry, but not published with that work. The maps 
were engraved, in 1774, by someone who resided far up the Hud- 
son River, were printed on paper made at Wilcox's Mills near 
Philadelphia, and their completion was announced in Rivington's 
New- York Gazetteer for May 4, 1775. Notwithstanding these 
known facts, the maps are of such excessive rarity as to have 
made their existence, heretofore, a matter of doubt and subject 
for controversy among American Bibliographers. The title of 
the second map is as follows :

THE HAND-BILL OF THE COMMITTEE'S WHICH WAS PUBLISHED ON THE 29TH ULT. 
HAS BEEN REPUBLISHED IN MR. GAINE's PAPER OF LAST MONDAY, TOGETHER

IT 18 NOT EASY TO ASCERTAIN ALL THE VIEWS OF THE PUBLISHER ; THOUGH THERE 
IS NO DOUBT FROM HIS WELL KNOWN CANDOUR AND INGENUITY, AS WELL AS FROM 
WHAT IS THERE ADDED, THAT IT IS INTENDED TO CAST AN ODIUM ON THE PATRI- 
OTICK MAJORITY, WHO GAVE YOU THEIR MOST FRIENDLY ADVICE, MERELY AS 

PRIVATE CITIZENS. [Republishing the hand-bill, with remarks. And accusing 
Isaac Low with the republication in Gaine's paper ; with assisting in a treach-

/ Willinmxburg :] Alexander Purdie, Printer. 1775. fol. LOC. 

Founded by Alexander Purdie, and continued by him in the inter- 
ests of the friends of American Independence to May ? 1778. In 
October, 1775, Alexander Purdie was appointed, by Benjamin 
Franklin, Constitutional Postmaster, and the printing-office 
became the post-office as well. After the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence he became Printer to the Commonwealth. In May, 1776, 
the cut of the Arms, in the heading, was displaced by a square 
with the motto : Thirteen United Colonies. United, we stand 
divided, we fall. And this was displaced, in June, by a cut of a 
snake, and the motto : Don't tread ou me. Which was con- 
tinued into the following year.

Founded by John Clarkson, and Augustine Davis, and continued 
by them to the end of the year 1780. The invasion of Virginia 
by the British army forced suspension, probably with the issue 
for December 9th. With the vandal acts of invasion, the ancient 
glory of Williamsburg as the capital of Virginia departed forever.

Discontinued at about the above date. In June of this year Lord 
Dunmore took refuge upon a man of war, and attempted to 
govern Virginia from a flotilla off Norfolk. Shortly after, the 
press of John H. Holt & Co., was seized by his orders, and after 
the destruction of Norfolk in January, 1776, there was issued 
from his ship a little newspaper called The Virginia Gazette, 
which was distributed on shore among the loyalists, of which no 
copies are known to be extant.

Hew York, exasperated by the tory issues of his press, headed a

sheets aud manuscript of this work, as well as much more of the 
printer's property. Rivington, himself, was soon after arrested 
and only released upon making public apology and signing the 
general association. Isaac Wilkins fled the country and was 
thereafter a pensioner from the British government.

author, pp. [24.] 8vo. KI. 

Second title, an reverse : THE AMERICAN WONDER OK, THE NEW-ENGLAND 
VISION OF THE NIGHT | BEING TIIK MOST REMARKABLE DREAM THAT EVER WAS 
DREAMED IN AMERICA. TOGETHER WITH A SHORT EXHORTATION TO ALL INTO 
WHOSE HANDS THIS DREAM MAT PALL. IT WAS SOME TIME SINCE DKEAMED BY 
SAMUEL CLARKE, OP GLOUCESTER, IN THE COUNTY OP ESSEX, AND COLONY OP 
MASSACHUSETTS-BAY, WHICH HE AFTERWARDS WROTE WITH A PEN IN HIS TEETH, 
AS HE LAY BED-RID THIRTY YEARS ; FOURTEEN OF WHICH HE WAS NOT ABLE TO 

LIFT HIS HAND TO HIS HEAD. IT IS NOW RE-PUBLISHED AT THE REQUEST OF 

MANY FRIENDS TO AMERICA ; AND AS MOST OF THE PREDICTIONS THEREIN CON- 
TAINED ARK AT THIS DAY IN A VERY SURPKIZINO AND REMARKABLE MANNER AC- 
COMPLISHED, IT IS THOUGHT VERY APPLICABLE TO THE PRESENT TIMES. IN THE 
KIGHTH EDITION IS CONTAINED SOME MARGINAL NOTES, AND A VERY SUITABLE AND 
SEASONABLE PREFACE, BY WAY OF OBSERVATION AND COMPARISON BETWEEN THE 
TIMES IN WHICH THE THINGS WERE POKETOLED IN THE ABOVE DREAM AND THE 
PRESENT DARK AND MELANCHOLLY [sic] DAY, WHICH WERE NEVER INSERTED IN 
ANY FORMEIl EDITION : BY PuBLICOLA, WHO IS A SINCERE FRIEND AND WELL- 
WISHEU TO THE CIVIL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES OP THE AMERICAN 
COLONIES IN GENERAL AND WHO MOST HUMBLY DEPRECATE THE DEPUEDATIONS 
LATELY MADE THEREIN, AND THE DISTRESSED SITUATION AMERICA IS NOW THROWN 

INTO, OCCASIONED BY THE CRUELTY OF OUR ENEMIES. As, IN THE NOTES OF THIS 

PAMPHLET, ARE INSERTED THE NAMES OF MANY OF OUR BRAVE AND RENOWNED 
AMERICAN BRETHREN, WHO FELL IN FIGHTING FOR THE LIBERTIES THEREOF, 
IT IS THOUGHT NOT IMPROPER TO BE PRESERVED BY THE GENTLEMEN BELONG- 
ING TO THE AMERICAN CONTINENTAL ARMY, TO WHOSE PATRONAGE IT is BY THE 

PUBLISHER MOST RESPECTFULLY RECOMMENDED. [Preface signed,] PuBLICOLA. 

COUNTY OF ESSEX, FEB. 1776. 

The Publisher's preface states that the Dream would have 
appeared several months ago, if it had not been for the great 
scarcity of paper, and calls attention to the action of the Massa- 
chusetts House of Representatives of February 16, 1776, for the 
saving and collecting of rags for that purpose ; and to the facts 
that "a Paper-Mill is to be erected with the utmost speed at New- 
bury-Port, in this County ; another will be erected, if suitable 
encouragement offers, at Sutton, in the County of Worcester 
which, with those already erected, will make eight in New-Eng- 
land, viz. four at Milton, one at Providence, and one at Norwich, 
which is not one half the number of those necessary and advanta- 
geous machines that are at this time set up in the thriving Colony 
of Pennsylvania alone."

AMERICA : BEING AN ANSWER TO THE DECLARATION OF THE GENERAL CONGRESS. 
SAID TO BE WRITTEN BY LORD GEORGE GKRMAINE. THE SECOND EDITION. 

London Printed : Philadelphia Re-Printed, and sold by R. Bell, in Third- 
Street. MDCCLXXVI. 

This work is variously attributed to Lord George Germaine, 1st 
Viscount Sackville ; to Sir James Mackintosh ; to James Macpher- 
son : to Henry Mackenzie; and to Sir John Dalrymple. The copy 
now in the John Carter Brown Library which formerly belonged 
to Sir James Mackintosh, himself one of the supposed authors, 
bears the statement in his handwriting that this work is "now 
owned to be by Sir John Dalrymple," and decisively settles the 
question of authorship. Regarding it the Monthly Review says : 
" This celebrated performance is said to have been written, printed, 
and liberally distributed both in Great Britain and America, at the 
instance and expense of government ; but whether this be true or 
not, the work itself, we are afraid, will answer no other purpose 
than to exasperate the people of Great Britain against their 
brethren of America ; and by inflaming misrepresentations and 
invectives, aggravate the evils of our present civil discord."

AND THE BOSTON WEEKLY NEWS-LETTER. 



Boston : Printed by John Howe, in Newbury- Street. 1776. fol. 
When the British troops evacuated Boston, John Howe fled with 
them, and the News-letter ceased to appear after a nearly con- 
tinuous publication of seventy-two years. The first newspaper in 
the American Colonies to be established on a firm basis, it had 
had numerous changes in ownership, and fortunes, but from the 
first it retained its official character, and fell with the government 
it represented. In the eleven changes of title it had suffered under 
its different ownerships it had always retained in some form the 
quaint name of "News-letter" as indicative of the form in which 
it was begun in the year 1704.

ber 30th, to No. 1305, for October 28th. After the battle of 
Long Island, Gaine concluding that the Americans had the losing

PAINE, THOMAS 1736-1809 

THE [American] CRISIS. NOMBEK i. By THE AUTHOR OP COMMON SENSE. THESE 

ARE THE TIMES THAT TRY MEN'S SOULS. . . . [Signed,] COMMON SENSE. 

DECEMBER 28, 1776. 

[Philadelphia : Printed by Melehior Steiner and Charles CM. 1776.] 

pp. [8.] 8VO. BM. HC. HBP. JOB. LCP. MHS. NTPL. 

This number first appeared in the Pennsylvania Journal for 
December 19, 1776. The title was evidently suggested by the 
English publication of the preceding year, with which it has 
sometimes been confounded, even to the introduction of A Crisis 
extraordinary. The first number is of especial historical interest. 
It was written during Washington's retreat over the Delaware, 
and by his order was read to groups of his dispirited and suffer- 
ing soldiers, and its opening sentence adopted as the watchword 
of the movement on Trenton. A complete series, including 
A Crisis extraordinary, and two supernumerary Crisis, make 
sixteen numbers, beginning in December 1776, and ending April 
19, 1783, on the eighth anniversary of the battle at Lexington: his 
ending recalling his beginning with the line, "The times that 
tried men's souls are over." Paine, however, always referred to 
their number as thirteen, or the number of the American Colonies. 
They have been reprinted at Albany, in 1792 ; at Granville, 
Middleton, New Jersey, in 1839 ; and, at New York, in 1902.

The authorship of this work has been attributed, on insufficient 
evidence, to Joseph Galloway, Alexander Hamilton, Charles Inglis, 
and Richard Wells. By Hildeburn, with some probability, to 
George Chalmers. By Ford, with more probability from internal 
evidence, to the Reverend William Smith, D. D. Its general 
character can be inferred from the statement in the Monthly 
Review : that it "is written with such outrageous zeal, and 
contains so many scurrilous reflections against the author of 
'Common sense' and the supposed favorers of independency, 
that we may safely conclude, from its having been printed in 
Philadelphia, that the Congress do not aim at a separation from

nature which some have chosen to represent it." Some copies of 
the Additions are partly printed on a coarse blue tinted paper. 
In these there is generally pasted on the back of the title a slip of 
this blue paper with this explanation : To every purchaser. The 
impossibility of obtaining white, constituted the law of necessity 
for part of these Additions to appear in blue. The philosopher 
reacheth beyond outward appearances. The patriot surmounteth 
every difficulty. And the bookseller industriously attempteth 
business, agreeable to the prescriptions and decrees of the British 
and American laws of freedom concerning the liberty of the 
press. Third Street, April 24th, 1776.

THURSDAY THE 18iH OF MARCH, 1776. REBELS AND TRAITORS BEHOLD ME NOW, 

AND TAKE WARNING BY THIS MY DESERVED DEATH. HAD I BUT HAVE TAR- 
RIED IN MY NATIVE COUNTRY, WHEN THERE LAST, I MIGHT, FOR A LITTLE WHILE 
LONGER, HAVE ESCAPED THIS IGNOMINOUS DEATH ; BUT BY THE PERSUASION OF 

BUTE AND THE DEVIL, i RETURNED TO AMERICA TO PURSUE MY OLD PRACTICE OF 

SHEDDING THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT, THE FATHERLESS AND WIDOW. 

BUT, ALAS, THE DEVIL HATH FORSAKEN ME, AS HE WILL ALL SUCH TRAITORS ; 
WHEREFORE I BESEECH YOU GAGE, BuRGOYNE, HOWE, CLINTON, DUNMORE AND 
VANDEPUT, AND MANY MORE OF SUCH LIKE INFERNAL ACQUAINTANCE, TO QUIT 
THE STEPS YOU ARE NOW TREADING, AND LET MY SHAMEFUL END BE THE MEANS 
OF TURNING YOU FROM FOLLOWING THE DAMNABLE ADVICE OF NORTH AND A 
CURSED MINISTRY, OR YOU WILL, WHEN TOO LATE, CURSE THE FIRST MOMENT YOU 

EVER LISTENED TO THEM. ON ACCOUNT OF MY INNUMERABLE TREACHERIES TO 
THIS MUCH INJURED COUNTRY, I CANNOT EXPECT THE PRAYERS OF ANY GOOD 
PEOPLE ; NOR HAVE I THE LEAST HOPES OF MY OWN PRAYERS BEING HEARD, BO I 
DIE ONLY IN EXPECTATION OF MEETING MY BEFORE-MENTIONED ACQUAINTANCE, 
AND SOME OTHERS OF THE SAME KIND, IN A H-LL ONLY FITTING FOR SUCH INFER- 
NAL WRETCHES AS THEY AND MYSELF.

An edition of oue thousand copies was printed and distributed, 
without change in title, to subscribers in the American Colonies, 
England, Scotland and Ireland. After deducting expenses, over 
two hundred and ninety pounds was 1 "distributed in charity." 
The volume contains a nineteen-page list of subscribers' names 
almost entirely of the British army and navy. The work has 
remained infamous from the following foot-note on page 190, 
under the subject of bows : Dip arrows in matter of small-pox, 
and twang them at the American rebels, in order to inoculate 
them ; this would sooner disband these stubborn, ignorant, 
enthusiastic savnges, than any other compulsive measures. Such 
is their dread and fear of that disorder! In all but two known 
copies this note is mortised out. In some copies an engraved 
frontispiece, by J. Smither, is inserted. The Lenox Collection of 
the New York Public Library has copies with and without the 
variations noted.

15315 THE PROWESS OF THE WHIG CLUB, AND THE MANOEUVRES OF LEGION. "PRO 

Auis ET Focis ! " [Two lines from] SWIFT. 

Baltimore : Printed for the Author. [1777.] pp. [16], (4), [4.] 16ino. BA. 
This tract contains the defense of William Goddard against the 
action of the Whig Club of Baltimore, which drove him from the 
city in consequence of an article published in the Maryland 
Journal, under the signature of " Tom Tell Truth." The inten- 
tion of this article, which was written by General Charles Lee, was 
" ironically to sneer at a silly report then prevailing, that General 
Howe had offered the most eligible terms of accomodation to 
Congress, which they had refused and concealed from the people." 
A committee of the Whig Club waited upon Mr. Goddard and 
demanded of him the author's name, which he refused to give, 
and by their request accompanied the committee to the club room. 
Here he was again interrogated, and on his refusal to make known 
the name of the writer in question, they passed a sentence of 
banishment against him. Mr. Goddard memorialized the Council 
of Safety for Maryland, whose committee reported that the " pro- 
ceedings are a manifest violation of the Constitution, contrary to 
the Declaration of rights, and tend, in their consequences, to the 
overthrow of all regular government."
