April 6, 1841

LONG-ISLAND DEMOCRAT, Jamaica, New York, April 6, 1841  The top of pg. 3 has: "Death Of The President" with the report beginning: "Yesterday mornings mail bought the important, but not altogether unexpected intelligence of the death of William Henry Harrison, President of the United States.
By this event John Tyler, the vice President becomes president for the balance of Gen. Harrisons term, and Samuel L. Southard President pro. tem. of the Senate becomes Vice President of the United States."
And just a few more observations in this report.
In honor of Harrison's death all columns on pgs. 2 & 3 are black-bordered. Four pages, nice condition.
