The government as a ship...



Item # 571707

June 6, 1789

THE MASSACHUSETTS CENTINEL, Boston, June 6, 1789 

* U.S. government as a ship reference 
* President George Washington commands 

Page two has an excellent analogy of the new federal government the creation of a new ship, beginning: "The FEDERAL SHIP just launched on the Ocean of Empire, the Ship  Columbia, GEORGE WASHINGTON Commander, which after being thirteen years in dock, is at length well manned & in very good condition..." with more (see).

Other news & ads of the day, rejoined at the spine, close-trimmed at the bottom margin affects the bottom line but not affecting the article noted above. Otherwise nice condition.
