Item # 639980
November 25, 1820
NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Nov. 25, 1820
* 2 slavery ads from our nation's capital
The back page has an ad: "Runaway Negro For Sale" with details, and also: "Wanted To Hire" a few slaves (see). The back page has more than a full column headed: "On Military Science - Construction of Seacoast Batteries". Uncommon to find slave ads from out nation's capital.
Much reporting from Congress inside. Four pages, nice condition.
