Andrew Jackson's state-of-the-union address, from the nation's capital...
Item # 657082
December 8, 1831
NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Dec. 8, 1831 Almost the entire front page is taken up with the annual state-of-the-union address, signed in type at its conclusion by: Andrew Jackson. It is headed: "MESSAGE From The President of the United States to Both Houses of Congress...".
As was typical with this annual tradition, President Jackson reviewed the events of the year addressing the broad scope of work which concerned the nation in 1831.
Terrific to have this document in this title from the nation's capital, where the address was given. And not surprisingly it appears here two days earlier than most newspapers as the Intelligencer was the "mouthpiece" of Congress. Even nearby Baltimore newspapers printed it in their December 10 editions.
Four pages, very nice condition.
