Page two has an article taking close to half the page headed: "Jews In Maryland" which begins: "From an agitation of the subject in the papers, we presume that another attempt will be made at the ensuing session of the legislature of Maryland to exonerate this persecuted sect from the odious restrictions which our incomprehensible constitution imposes on them..." plus much more. The full text of this article can be seen in the photos.
Among other reports in this issue are: "The Right & Power on Suffrage" "Missouri" "Report on the Navy" "Missions to the Indians" which concerns the Osage Indians with two documents signed in type: J. C. Calhoun.
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, nice condition.
