The Connecticut Courant. Vol. XXXIV. Number 1786

Hartford: printed by Hudson and Goodwin, Monday April 15, 1799. Approx. 19½ " x 12¼ ", pp. [4]; 5 columns per page; removed from binding. Contains an anonymous two-and-a-half column article "A Picture of France and the Directory" with an excerpt describing its corruption, "The design of the directory is to place all nations under the domination of scoundrels; thus to procure faithful allies and to conceal its own enormitites in the crimes of the universal revolution which it meditates and in realizing makes hourly progress... or Barras's frequently sending his dogs to take the country air in a carriage of the late queen of France, drawn by four horses glittering with gold, silver, &c.&c. Although all Paris would testify to the truth of these occurrences, I will not expose myself to the danger of creating in you a disbelief...I have given you a feeble idea of the criminal and ridiculous excesses of the directory of France." Also in foreign news London: an outline of the plan to be proposed of a Union between Great Britain and Ireland, numerous ads, including patent medicines, lands and farms for sale, and rum.
