Campaign item against Eldridge Gerry for governor...
Item # 597612
March 30, 1811
COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, March 30, 1811 The front page has a black-bordered item headed: "Gerry And Sequestration! " which is essentially a campaign promotion with a "Black List" of American vessels: "...laden with American Property--Sailing under the Authority & Laws of the United States...which have been Seized, Libelled, Bonded, and Will Probably Be Sequestrated by the orders of that Government...which ought to have protected them..." with much more. This newspaper supported Gore for Governor, hence the anti-Gerry notice on the front page (see).
Four pages, good condition.
