Jackson's state-of-the-union address, from the nation's capital...
Item # 657086
December 5, 1833
NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Dec. 5, 1833 Almost the entire back page is taken up with the President's 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...".
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 1833.
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 one of the nearby Baltimore newspapers printed it in their December 7 edition.
Four pages, nice condition.
