dc.description.abstractIncludes a brief extract of a letter to the editors, dated at Rome, N.Y., 18 November 1812. It is written that “Commodore Chauncey has actually captured two British vessels on the lake, a sloop and schooner. Col. Brock, relative of the late Gen. Brock was taken prisoner; and it is said, and generally believed, that the body of the General, was also on board in a hogshead of spirits (we have seen it related, in several papers, that the General was buried with military honors near Newark—if so, the account of his being taken prisoner in a hogshead of spirits is not probable -- Editors)”.
dc.description.abstractA proclamation addressed “to the men of New York” by Gen. Smyth, dated at Buffalo, 10 November 1812 is included on the back page. Smyth hopes to raise volunteers to participate in an attack on Canada at Niagara. He writes that “in a few days, the troops under my command will plant the American standard in Canada. They are men accustomed to obedience, silence and steadiness. They will conquer, or they will die”.
