Death of Dolley Madison, in a Washington newspaper...
Item # 657384
July 14, 1849
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., July 14, 1849
* Death of Dolley Madison
* First Lady of the United States
* Best title to be had - rare as such
The top of page 3 has a black-bordered report noting: "It is with saddened hearts that we announce to our readers the decease of Mrs. Madison, Widow of James Madison, Ex-President of the United States..." with particulars.
Great to have this report in a newspaper from the nation's capital, where she died.
Four pages, very nice condition.
