By the Honourable Spencer Phips, Esq; Lieutenant-Governour and Commander in Chief, in and over his Majesty's Province of the Massachusetts-Bay in New-England. A Proclamation. For the Encouragement of Persons to inlist into his Majesty's Service in the Expedition under the Command of his Excellency the Right Honourable the Earl of Loudoun for the Defence of his Majesty's Colonies, and for the Annoyance of his Majesty's Enemies in North-America.
Boston: John Draper, 1757. Letterpress broadside with wide margins (15x12 inches, 375x310 mm). Condition: Staining, creases and folds, lower right corner torn with paper loss but not affecting text, some hole from burn through of a contemporary ink docketing on verso. very rare french and indian war recruitment broadside to raise a new england force to lay siege to louisbourg. In January 1757, Lord Loudoun, the commander-in-chief of the British forces in North America, held a council of war attended by the colonial governors of New England, including Phips, where it was determined that a force of 3000 New Englanders needed to be raised for a campaign to take the French-held fortress at Louisbourg. The Massachusetts-Bay quota, as indicated by this broadside, was 1800 men. Dated 21 February 1757, this broadside outlines the terms of the one year enlistment. Beyond the normal one pound, sixteen shillings wage, the volunteer would be provided a blanket, a coat, a hat and six dollars. The broadside continues by offering an additional four dollars to those who had served “upon either of the Crown-Point Expeditions, the Expeditions at Nova Scotia, or Kennebeck in the Year 1754, and such as have been in the Batteau-Service, or have served as Pioneers, or in the independent ranging companies under Captain Rogers, or that have been employed in the Defence of the Frontiers of the Province within three Years last past.” Although a significant New England and British force advanced as far as Halifax in the summer of 1757, there Loudon received intelligence that the French force at Louisburg was too powerful to be taken and the expedition abandoned. The following year, a second assault led by Amherst would take the fortress. Bristol cites only the Massachusetts Historical Society copy, no copies are listed on OCLC and we could find no record of this broadside appearing at auction. Bristol B1885; Ford, Massachusetts Broadsides 1082; Shipton & Mooney 40921.
