Funeral for Governor Increase Sumner...
Item # 656872
June 13, 1799
J. RUSSELL'S GAZETTE, Boston, June 13, 1799 Page 3 has a nice and rather graphic account of the funeral of Governor Increase Sumner. He had just begun serving his 3rd term as governor when he died. The article includes an engraving of the coffin, plus a listing of the funeral procession and noting "The Hearse" among other aspects of the parade. Nice to have this report in a Boston newspaper.
Four pates, some damp staining, generally good condition.
