Item # 212900

November 14, 1810

CONNECTICUT COURANT, Hartford, Nov. 14, 1810.
* James Madison
* Trade With France & U.K.

Page 2 has A Proclamation which reinstated trade with France and forbade any trade with Great Britain, signed in type: James Madison. Believing that Napoleon had rescinded the Berlin and Milan Decrees, Madison issued the aforementioned proclamation. He was, however, deceived by the French, and they continued to harass American vessels. Other news of the day includes: "Florida" "Mungo Park" and much more. Several interesting advertisements as well. A few foxing spots.
