Statehood for Vermont... monument in memory of Franklin...
Item # 621205
October 18, 1790
CONNECTICUT COURANT, & WEEKLY INTELLIGENCER, Hartford, Oct. 18, 1790 A page 3 report under "Hartford" states that the commissioners of New York & Vermont reached a decision: "... the result is, that Vermont is dismembered from...New-York, and the New Hampshire grants...are acknowledged to be valid. Thus the way is open for the admission of Vermont into the Federal Union".
Another report says: "The National Assembly of France have passed a decree, to have a monument erected, with the stones of the Bastille, to the memory of Dr. Franklin." Other news with a few ads.
Piece missing in the upper left corner causes obvious loss, margin & unrelated text loss at the bottom, irregular at the bottom as well, archival mends to various tear, some lite foxing.
