John Quincy Adams' S.O.U. Address...
Earliest (?) mention of Davey Crocket in a major-city newspaper...
Item # 651850
December 8, 1827
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Dec. 8, 1827 Page 233 has an updated list of the members of the House and Senate, which includes the appearance of David Crockett, with acknowledgment of him being a new member. This is the earliest mention of him in a nationally distributed newspaper we have seen to-date.
Continuing at the bottom of this page and taking several pages is also the full text of President John Quincy Adam's State of the Union Address, which begins: "A revolution of the seasons has nearly been completed since the representatives of the people and States of this Union were last assembled at this place to deliberate and to act upon the common important interests of their constituents," and is in block type, JOHN QUINCY ADAMS. Washington, December 4, 1827.
Other news of the day is found throughout.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, bit of foxing, otherwise in very nice condition.
