 Perhaps the prime content in this issue is a report on the Battle of Tippecanoe, headed: "Battle On The Wabash" and prefaced with: "...message from the President of the United States, enclosing governor Harrison's two letters...on the late engagement with the Indians..." with the complete text taking nearly 4 pages. (see photos for portions), including the note signed in type: James Madison, and the detailed battle report signed: William Henry Harrison. There is also another report datelined "Vincennes, 4th Dec. 1811" on the battle, signed: William Henry Harrison.
Included also are the census reports for Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina, including a column for "Slaves". Also included is the 8 page "Supplement" issue.
Complete in 24 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."
