Jolly Old England - Armand Francis Lucier. Inside this wonderful book is a collection of news items, stories, commentaries and depositions that were published under English datelines from 1720-1730 in Colonial American newspapers. All articles were originally published in English newspapers brought to the colonies by travelers. The articles are presented here verbatim. So, have a seat in your favorite easy chair, imagine you're in a tavern in London, (the Rose and Crown, the Halfmoon and Rummer, or maybe, the Queen's Head Alehouse) and let yourself get lost in the stories of Jolly Old England.
