KEEPS DEATH'S SPECTRE AWAY




“He dared to lead where any dared to follow."

HEADQUARTERS, 7th August, 1777.

“SIR — Edmund Palmer, an officer in the enemy's service, was taken as a spy lurking within our lines. He has been tried as a spy, condemned as a spy, and shall be executed as a spy ; and the flag is ordered to depart immediately.”

“ISRAEL PUTNAM."


P. S. — He has been accordingly hanged."
