Item # 640346
January 21, 1826
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Jan. 21, 1826
* Mordecai Manuel Noah
* Jewish homeland on the Niagara River
The prime article is: "Re-assemblage of the Jews" which has a letter somewhat critical of the efforts of Morecai Manuel Noah to create a homeland for the Jews on Grand Island in the Niagara River. This is followed by some responses by Mr. Noah (see).
Also within: "Slave Labor" which is brief (see), and over half a page on: "Officers of the Navy" which lists the number of the various ranks, plus names of the captains, masters commandant, and lieutenants (see).
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches, nice condition.
This newspaper began in 1811 and was a prime source for national political news of the first half of the 19th century. Wikipedia notes: "Niles...Register (was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics, Niles' Weekly Register is considered an important source for the history of the period."
