Mormon content: report on Joe Smith...
Item # 631005
September 17, 1842
NILES' NATIONAL REGISTER, Baltimore, Sept. 17, 1842 The back page has a brief yet rather rare report with a mini-head: "Joe Smith" stating: "This wonderful fellow is to be bodily absent from his people for ten years; so say the latest accounts." (see photos) Just before this is a small article: "Slave Trade", and several pages are taken up with: "Northeaster & Northwestern Boundary" with Canada, being correspondence between Lord Ashburton and Daniel Webster.
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 by 12 inches, nice condition.
As noted in Wikipedia: "Niles edited and published the Weekly Register until 1836, making it into one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States and himself into one of the most influential journalists of his day. Devoted primarily to politics, Niles' Weekly Register is considered an important source for the history of the period."
