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



Item # 623260

December 10, 1819

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).
