(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.
