The famous campaign newspaper published by Horace Greeley in support of William Henry Harrison in the 1840 election, its success carrying over to many issues beyond the inauguration--including this one.
This issue is from shortly after Harrison's Death, content including: "Gen. Harrison's Last Letter" 'Mr. Tyler's Opinions" "The Presidential Succession" [remember that Harrison was the first President to die in office] & a few other items relating to Harrison's death. Page 3 has a full column with: "President Tyler's Address To the People of the United States" which--partially--concerns the death of Harrison.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, engraving of a log cabin in the masthead, foxing & dirtiness at the folds, otherwise good.
