Description

Printed Letter from the Commission of the General Assembly to the Presbytery of Hamilton 1706 in regards to Scotland and the Act of Union, Anti Union Broadside, telling them all will be well with discussions for the union with England. But reply from the people in Hamilton states that are not at all happy with this intended Union stating "As to the Disposition of the People, the plain Truth is, That they are generally most adverse from the Union; and many have expressed themselves broadly against it, as what they fear may prove an irremediable Evil". So England in the end made them happy by throwing a lot of money into the pot. Black letter press printing with some tears to the edges and centrefold, in A/G condition overall 20cm 32cm
