Description: 98 pgs.; 16 cm.
Smith was an itinerant Baptist minister who had taken a land grant in Upper Canada in 1808, but who was then driven from that British territory for his American loyalism at the start of the War of 1812; on arriving in Richmond in 1814, he published an autobiographical account of his escape from Canada through the press of Samuel Pleasants (1814.048); this new work continued that association, as Booker had acquired the Pleasants press after the death of his former employer shortly before this title, dated "Richmond, April 4th, 1815," was issued. This title was a continuation of A Geographical View of the British Possessions published in Baltimore in 1814 (Shaw & Shoemaker 32800); Smith had that work reprinted by Booker in Richmond (1815.024) with this item as a continuously paginated "Appendix" to that title; his plan, as stated in the introduction to the larger work [p. 4], was to rectify distribution delays for the Baltimore edition, by allowing subscribers to that work to add the new material here without having to buy the entire new edition. This part of the larger work is only element filmed by the Early American Imprints Series.
