Best MARTIN VAN BUREN State of the Union Address 1839 Washington D.C. Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 372738128312

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Dec. 25, 1839 * President Martin Van Buren * State of the Union Address The entire page 2 and nearly one-third of page 3 are taken up with the President's annual state-of-the-union address, headed: "MESSAGE of the President Of the United States Transmitted to Both Houses of Congress, Dec. 24, 1839". As was typical with such addresses the President touches upon the happenings of the year. It is signed by him at the conclusion: M. Van Buren. Terrific to have this report in a Washington newspaper, where the address was given. The top of page 3 has an editorial on it headed: "The Message". Also of curious interest--and perhaps not surprising in this Christmas Day issue--i... See More
