Electronic reproduction. Dec. 22, 1777 only. Marlborough, England : Adam Matthew Digital, c2014 (American history, 1493-1945. Module 1, Settlement, commerce, revolution and reform, 1493-1859) Dec. 22, 1777 issue includes speech to the House of Lords by William Pitt, Earl of Chatham. Pitt declares: "My Lords, I content, that we have not, nor can procure any force sufficient to subdue America. It is monstrous to think of it. There are several noble Lords present well acquainted with military affairs. I call upon any one of them to rise and pledge himself, that the military force now within the kingdom is adequate to its defence; or that any possible force to be procured from Germany, Switzerland, or elsewhere, will be equal to the conquest of America. I am too perfectly persuaded of their abilities and integrity, to expect any such assurance from them. Oh! but if American is not to be conquered, she may be treated with." Includes mention of Boston resolves pertaining to the quartering of Burgoyne and the Convention Army. Contains reports regarding a successful attack on British General William Howe, the obstruction of the Delaware River, and praise of the German troops in Quebec, among various other topics.
