1778-10-03, Manifesto and Proclamation granting pardon to colonists rebelling against the Crown
October 3, 1778 Manifesto and proclamation by the Earl of Carlisle, Sir Henry Clinton, and William Eden, who served as commissioners appointed by
King George III to negotiate with the United States. Having failed to achieve their goal with the Continental Congress, this broadside also appealed to
the state assemblies, as well as the Congress for consideration of their proposed terms, including pardons for those who reaffirm their allegiance to
Britain. See LLMC #20980 for a copy of the manifesto, along with a response from Americanus, A Virginian. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title
originally held by the New York Historical Society Library).
