islands in question.
Europe, on the present state of affairs between the Old and
America, the editor says, was written by a gentleman lately deceased, who, from some misfortune in his personal relations, left England, and took up his residence in the Azores. It is, according to the Monthly Review, written with so much clearness of information and strength of argument, that it is probably the work of some eminent master, who
chooses to conceal himself behind a peculiar style, and a fictitious tale. 8 A STATE OF THE EXPEDITION from Canada, as laid before the
House of Commons by Lieutenant General Burgoyne, and verified by evidence; with a collection of authentic documents, and an addition of many circumstances which were prevented from appearing before the House by the prorogation of Parliament. Written and collected by himself, and
dedicated to the officers of the army he commanded. Quarto, pp. 140 and 63, 6 maps. "General Burgoyne writes well: his very interesting story is told in a
masterly manner, and the materials of which it is composed will be hold in great estimation by the historians who shall record the events of the
unbappy war to which they owe their birth.” M.R. 9 REMARKS on General Burgoyne's State of the expedition from Canuda.

that it is not a feeble attempt to rescue the general's reputation from the obloquy thrown upon it, not only by the author of the letters (to Joseph Galloway, esq.), but many other writers, who had joined in the cry

To which is added, an appendix, containing: 1. A letter to Sir William Howe, upon his strictures on Mr. Galloway's private character.
