Rumors about the frigate Constitution...

Item # 630056

April 30, 1814

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, April 30, 1814 

* USS Constitution

The front page has lengthy: "Mr. Ward's Speech...Bill Making Appropriations for the Support of the Military Establishment for 1814." Page 2 has: "An Armistice" which begins: "Reports are revived that a cessation of hostilities is speedily to take place...". Other smaller tidbits concerning the War of 1812 including a bit: "Constitution Frigate" noting: "The report that the frigate Constitution has been ordered to Europe with a flag of truce & a messenger, is incorrect. She is under orders to prepare immediately for sea only...".
Four pages, browning at the right margin, generally nice.
