Campaign item against Eldridge Gerry for governor...

Item # 588148

March 27, 1811

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, March 27, 1811 

* Anti Eldridge Gerry campaign

The front page has a black-bordered item headed: "Oppression Maketh A Wise Man Mad" & "Black List" which is essentially a campaign promotion with a list of American vessels: "...laden with American Property--Sailing under the Authority & Laws of the United States...which have been Seized, Libelled, Bonded, and Will Probably Be Sequestrated by the orders of that Government...which ought to have protected them..." with much more. This newspaper supported Gore for Governor, hence the anti-Gerry notice on the front page (see photos).

Four pages, various wear at the margins & central fold with some minor loss, archival repairs at the spine, and various foxing & light dirtiness.
