Finally Returned After 200 Years

links to the war of 1812 book

200 years ago, Commodore Isaac Chauncey from Sackets Harbor, New York  invaded York (now Toronto) during the War of 1812.  During the Battle of York on April 27, 1813, three books were stolen from the city's only library.  200 years later on April 28, 2013, original copies of the the three titles -  Pope's Poetical Works (1752), Works of Dr. Jonathan Swift (1754) and Fordyce's Sermons to Young Women(1803) - were returned to the Toronto Reference Library by Constance Barone of Sackets Harbor.
