Item # 571934
September 3, 1802
NEW-ENGLAND MERCURY AND PALLADIUM, Boston, Sept. 3, 1802 A pg. 2 item says: We are happy to learn that the College of New Jersey (Princeton) is rapidly rebuilding. All the beams and joists in the house are laid, the roof is on in part....it is expected...it will be ready...in November. Other news of the day: "Commencement of Dartmouth College" "Damage By Lightning", interesting advertisements, and much more. Another interesting item (not shown in the images) is headed, "American Illuminati", and states in part: "...Mr. Wood is at Newark... the scourge of the Clintonians..." Also notes there will soon be published an account by the society of the Illuminati of this city: "...which will satisfy the most suspicious Christian, that a regular plot has been carrying on in this country, under the auspices of the infidels of Europe, for the abolition of Christianity".
Four pages, very nice condition.
