* Fraunces's Tavern advertisement
* Jay Treaty objection to George Washington
In the middle of the front page is an advertisement headed: "Fraunces's Tavern" noting the moving of the business to 59 South Water Street. The ad is signed in type: Samuel Fraunces. See Wikipedia or web-search for much more on this very famous tavern.
Page 3 has a lengthy address from people of Philadelphia: "To George Washington, President of the United States", objecting to some provisions of the Jay Treaty (see images for portions). Following this is a brief item noting: "...that Mr. Jay has been burnt in effigy in Charleston, S.C. and in Norfolk..." (see).
This city was the capital of the United States at the time, while the District of Columbia was under construction.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, period writing in the upper left corner, nice condition.
