ALS From James Rivington Publisher Of The Loyalist Newspaper New York Gazette And One Of General George Washington’s Most Successful Spys

James Rivington (1724-1802) English-born American journalist and publisher of Rivington’s Gazette, one of the most infamous Loyalist newspapers in the American colonies and a spy for General Washington. Autograph Letter Signed, “James Rivington” with integral address leaf to Jacob Reed, Member of So. Carolina at Congress: One page. New York .November 1, 1784. Rivington writes “Sir This morning received your favor of the 30 Ulto & beg leave to intimate that the Buckles mentioned in your letter shall be forwarded to Trenton by the first proper opportunity. My clerk tells me the price fixed on had you taken them, was five guineas, at which they are now reserved for you. A set of Rollins Roman History 4 Volumes, was last Saturday forwarded to a new established library society at Princeton to which I presume W. James Bond Read will join himself with the other students and of course derive the benefits without the expense of purchasing that voluminous work. I am, sir, Your most obliged and faithfull, humble servant. James Rivington.” The Address leaf is stamped with a free frank; “N. York nov:* 1*FREE.” While James Rivington was generally believed to be the Loyalist printer of the New York Gazette during the British occupation, he actually acted as a spy for General Washington to great effect. During the war, his greatest achievement is the capture of the British Navy’s entire signal book, which was passed on to Admiral De Grasse by American forces. Left margin has a couple of areas of paper loss, with one just slightly affecting one word of text. A few age spots. Fine.
