February 20, 1817
NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., February 20, 1817
* Entire Negro family for sale advertisement
* Slaves - slavery - nation's capital
Page 3 has a unique slave ad for the sale of an entire family - quite rare. The ad includes the owner's insistence for the buyer be a good master. Two other slavery ads as well. Unusual to find such ads from our nation's capital.
Other news of the day with additional period advertising is found throughout.
Four pages, lite foxing, in overall nice condition.
