Amusements in New York

From Diary of the American Revolution, Vol II.  Compiled by Frank Moore and published in 1859.

June 20.—The Tories in New York,finding much more tragedy than they desire to witness in their excursions to Westchester, the Jerseys and indigo Connecticut, (as Gaine calls it,) have taken to comedy. Last month a greater part of the army deserted their posts to attend a fox-chase on Long Island, and returned only in time to prepare for Deane’s rout in honor of Rawdon’s success at Hobkirk’s. A bull fight is next to feast the reason.”1

 

1 Carver, 164.
