NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, December 4, 1849  The front page has a brief article: "The Sandwich Islands" which provides one person's perspective on the widespread death that had befallen many (most) of the indigenous people of the region: "The immediate cause of this rapid decrease [death] may be explained in many ways. But the grand reason... it is the destiny of the race." Other news of the day and period advertising are found throughout.Four pages, very nice condition (see images).
