Image description

The last action of the first Continental Congress. Entitled "A Genuine Copy / of the / Petition from the General Congress in America to the King. Published by Order of the Congress, at Philadelphia Oct. 26, 1774." 2 columns. No imprint: Philadelphia, or English. Many members of the Continental Congress blamed the imperial crisis on the acts of malevolent ministers and implored King George to intercede with Parliament and find some means to preserve English liberties in America. In fact, the king was so invested in the imperial policies that he was unable to serve a mediating role in the conflict. It is interesting to contrast the language of this petition with that of the Declaration of Independence, drafted only twenty months later. George III (1738-1820), King of Great Britain.
