Death of Sam Adams...

Item # 638920

October 08, 1803

NEW YORK HERALD, Oct. 8, 1803 

* Samuel Adams death
* Governor of Massachusetts

The top of page 2 has a rather unassuming article: "Yesterday morning the death of Mr. SAMUEL ADAMS, Esq. late Governor of this Commonwealth, was announced to the inhabitants by the tolling of all the bells in town. Mr. Adams has long been a valetudinarian; and has experienced much of the indisposition and bodily pain natural to the infirmities of age. He had reached his 81st year."
Four pages, some light foxing, nice condition.
