Item # 649456
November 9, 1811
THE WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Nov. 9, 1811
* President James Madison
* State of the Union Address
* War of 1812 prelude
Beginning on the front page is the: "President's Message" which carries over to take all of pg. 2 and most of pg. 3 where it is signed in type: James Madison. This was the President's annual state-of-the-union address in which he addresses the significant issues of the year and thoughts on 1812, particularly noteworthy since the War of 1812 would begin in less than 7 months.
The balance of the issue has other news of the day & political reports from Congress, etc.
Included are two 8 page supplements, consequently 32 pages, 6 by 9 3/4 inches, very nice condition.
As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
