Over half of the issue on Slavery and the abolitionists...



Item # 574805

October 3, 1835

NILES REGISTER, Baltimore, October 3, 1835 

* Slavery & abolitionists

An inside page has: "Slavery & the Abolitionists" which begins by reporting on: "A great anti-abolition meeting...at Troy, New York, the mayor presiding. The resolutions were all pointed & severe...we consider all attempts to induce congress to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia...as unwise, inexpedient & incendiary..." with more (see for portions).  This report takes over half of the issue, or more than 8 pages. Various opinions on the slavery issue are presented.
Measures 6 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice condition.

This small size newspaper began in 1811 and was a prime source for national political news of the first half of the 19th century. As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
