== == The original was not sent to the king. It sits today on display in the National Archives in Washington D.C. No official notice was given by the Congress to the British government that independence had been declared. Mail packets carried printed copies to England where they were given to government officials and printed in newspapers. British officials, such as General Howe, also included copies in their official reports to London. One copy had been sent to him directly on a British ship, but the ship was blown off course and landed in Ireland. The contents of the Declaration O Independence were published in a Belfast newspaper. That copy apparently never got to King George, but others that were forwarded to King George by other people did reach him.
