The front page has a notice that: "The resolution for the admission of Missouri into the Union...has passed the Senate by a decisive majority...not yet been read in the House...All the indications of a speedy decision of that question...have failed..." (see). Another ftpg. report from Congress is headed: "Admission of Missouri".
Page 2 has an Act of Congress concerning the sale of land in Illinois, signed in type by the President: James Monroe. The back page has a quite large "General Statement of the Bank of the United States...", the chart taking nearly half the page.
