Item # 651860
March 11, 1837
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, March 11, 1837 Page 2 begins with: "The Inauguration" which has details of the inaugural ceremonies for Martin Van Buren. This is followed by the: "Address" being his inaugural address, taking over a full page. This is followed by parting respects to Andrew Jackson, including: "Farewell Address of Andrew Jackson to the People of the U.S." which is lengthier than Van Buren's inaugural address, & is signed in type: Andrew Jackson.
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 by 12 inches, some very lite scattered foxing, otherwise in very good condition.
