DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington D.C., November 1, 1844
* Runaway slaves ad
The front page has a detailed notice offering a "Seven Hundred Dollars Reward" for "...the following slaves, to wit: Lewis, who calls himself Lewis Brawner....Daniel calls himself Daniel Paine....Charles calls himself Charles Mastin....Henry calls himself Henry Chapman....Also Gradison....One other negro fellow, Vincent ....One other boy, William....One other, Joe..." and more (see photos). Rare to see the word "slave" used in a runaway ad, and great to have on the front page from our nation's capital.
Four pages in good condition.
