It includes a document signed in type by the President: James Madison.
Of interest are 4 1/2 pages taken up with a large and detailed: "Army Register" noting all the officers retained under the act of Congress to reduce the military to just 10,000 men. The issue ends with an "Imperial Decree" signed by: Napoleon.
