7489. REVOLUTION (American), Mythical British victories.—

From the kind
anxiety expressed in your letter, as well as from
other sources of information, we discover that
our enemies have filled Europe with Thrasonic
accounts of victories they had never won and
conquests they were fated never to make.
While these accounts alarmed our friends in
Europe, they afforded us diversion.—
To—. Washington ed. i, 207. Ford ed., ii, 156.
(Wg. 1778)
