NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, March 3, 1821
* Missouri statehood ?
* Gold coinage
The front page has a paragraph noting: "The Missouri question is at last settled...The manner of it has not pleased either party...legislature of Missouri will obstinately refuse to accept the condition..." with more (see).
Inside includes: "Gold Coin" which is a report on the value of gold to be coined at the mint. Much reporting from Congress as well.
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
