John Fries is found guilty...
Item # 654441
May 16, 1799
J. RUSSELL'S GAZETTE, Boston, May 16, 1799
* John Fries's rebellion trial - guilty
Page 3 contains a very nice account headed: "TRIAL OF FRIES", being John Fries of "Fries Rebellion" infamy. He was ultimately found "Guilty" of treason, as is clearly printed in this report. A very nice, graphic presentation of his sentence.
Page 2 has related account: "Circuit Court - United States vs. John Fries. High Treason" taking about a paragraph (see).
Four pages, a small hole in each leaf does not affect either report, otherwise very nice condition.
