Pub' by W. Dent May 21, 1792 (within image bottom right above title); Title: FLYING NEWS; OR, Seringapatam taken by Stratagem} This Stockjobbing Humbug succeded so wonderfully in obtaining general Credit, as to induce a certain Secretary to run with the greatest expedition to [Kew?], and to deliver, with the utmost Confidence, the [Ideal, or Real?] intelligence he had grasped so greedily but! alas! to his confusion the extended Bubble soon burst into nothing; and he found precipitancy had placed him in a situation truly laughable and ridiculous!...(outside of image but within platemark starting at lower left and running to the end of lower right of sheet)
