'Sunday's Post' concerning the troubled state of trade and relations with China and the Northwest Coast of America: "Our countrymen have found a very considerable loss from the trade between China and the North West Coast of America, having been so abruptly stopped by the ill conduct of the Spaniards. The latter have since formed a most advantageous intercourse between the two countries, which is likely to be carried on to a very great extent." The article goes on to note trouble in Hawaii: "A small ship had been taken possession of by the Sandwich Islanders at Owhyee, and every person on board killed. Her name is unknown. Several ships are equipping in India for this trade, to the North West coast of America". (p189). Original folds, a bit of minor splitting.
