Broadside Concerning Ebenezer Richardson
||facing page|| 293
Anonymously composed, and illustrated with a woodcut after Paul Revere of the Boston Massacre, this broadside must have been written after 10 March 1772, when Richardson was “enlarged” (discharged); but the squib along the left margin dates itself 5 March 1772. The discrepancy has not been explained. See Clarence S. Brigham, Paul Revere's Engravings
