Clinton, Sir Henry:

A LETTER FROM LIEUT. GEN. SIR HENRY CLINTON, K.B. TO THE COMMISSIONERS OF PUBLIC ACCOUNTS, RELATIVE TO SOME OBSERVATIONS IN THEIR SEVENTH REPORT, WHICH MAY BE JUDGED TO IMPLY CENSURE ON THE LATE COMMANDERS IN CHIEF OF HIS MAJESTY'S ARMY IN NORTH AMERICA.

Debrett, London: 1784 31, [1] pp. Untrimmed and sewn. Near Fine. The last page consists of Debrett's publisher advertisements. Clinton objects to the Commissioners' failure to have called him to testify before they issued their report, as it appeared to criticize him unjustly. He offers rebuttal of the contention that he was sloppy (or worse) in his handling of public monies; and takes issue with Cornwallis for suggesting the contrary. To demonstrate his fidelity to the public trust, he prints his field orders regarding this matter. FIRST EDITION. Howes C494. Sabin 13750.
