Eighteenth-Century American Newspapers in the Library of Congress



354. The New-York gazette; and the weekly mercury. w., Sept. 21-Nov. 2, 1776.

Note: Hugh Gaine, the publisher, immediately prior to the British occupation of New York, removed to Newark, N.J., and there on Sept. 21, 1776, issued his paper with the above title. The last Newark issue was that of Nov. 2, 1776, no. 1307. Gaine then returned to New York. In the meantime Gaine's New York office, under the inspection of British authorities, had been used for the publication of a paper with the same title and the same volume numbering, nos. 1301-1307, but issued weekly from Sept. 30 to Nov. 11. The issue of Sept. 30 allowed Gaine's name to remain in the imprint, but the subsequent issues omitted it. (Brigham.)

Publisher: Hugh Gaine.

L.C. file contains:

1776. Sept. 21-Nov. 2. 1 v. photostat. V. 685
