THE DAILY ADVERTISER, New York, Feb. 12, 1789
* 18th century America
A nice newspaper from what was the nation's capital at the time, in fact Washington would be inaugurated in this city in just over 2 months. Pages 1, 3 & 4 are mostly filled with ads, with news reports on page 2 including a letter on the responsibility of elected representatives. Also a brief item concerning a truce with Indians. There is also a lengthy letter signed in type: J. Madison, as well as reporting from the New York legislature on the manner for electing federal representatives.
Four pages, very nice condition.
