Discussing Missouri statehood... Monroe's state-of-the-union address...
Item # 623260

NEW YORK SPECTATOR, Dec. 10, 1819
* President James Monroe's State of the Union Address
* Missouri statehood ?
Over half of page 2 is taken up with the President's annual state of the union address signed in type by the President: James Monroe.
The front page begins with a report on the: "Missouri Bill" noting in part: "...in relation to the introduction of slavery in the new states beyond the Mississippi...". Ultimately the discussion would result in the "Missouri Compromise" whereby Missouri would join s a slave state, and Maine as a free state.
Complete in 4 pages, only minimal foxing, overall nice (see images).
