“ This second part is employed in refuting a letter published in the New
York Mercury of January 5, 1756, containing objections to those parts of Evans's general map and analysis which relate to the French title to the country on the N. W. side of St. Laurence river, &c. To which our author replies with the appearance of much solidity of argument, as well as honesty of intention. He was certainly a sensible man, a good geographer, (so far at least as concerns that part of the world he treats of,) and a true friend to his country : so that bis death may justly be deemed a
public loss.” M. R. xv. p. 312. 11 AN IMPARTIAL View of the conduct of the Ministry in regard
to the war in America, the engagement with Hesse Cassel and Prussia, the cause of throwing out the militia bill, and the affairs in the Mediterranean; in answer to the many attacks of pamphleteers.
London. 8vo. 12 A NEW AND COMPLETE History of the British empire in America.
(London.) 8vo. 3 vols. I have a copy of a work which was commenced about this time, and issued
in numbers of twenty-four pages each, without any title-pages, the titles, as given above, being found on the first page of two of the three volumes into which it is divided. The first volume contains an introduction of fifty-two pages, and an account of Hudson's Bay, New FOUNDLAND, Nova Scotia, and New England, in 102 pages. The second continues the history of New England, and gives that of New York, NEW JERSEY, and PennsyLVANIA ; 496 pages. The third contains MARYLAND, Virginia, and North Carolina, ending abruptly at page 272. T'he volumes contain several very well executed maps and plates, but the work was apparently left in this unfinished state, which accounts for its being so
little known. 13 A NEW HISTORY of South AMERICA. By Richard Rolt. 8vo.
