DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., March 5, 1857
* President James Buchanan
* Inauguration - inaugural address
* Best title to be had (rare as such)
A terrific issue in which to find the inauguration and inaugural address of President James Buchanan. Almost the entirety of the first two columns on page 3 are taken up with the: "Inaugural Address". If is prefaced with: "The following is a copy of the Inaugural Address delivered yesterday by the Hon. James Buchanan on his installation of President of the United States for the ensuing four years:..." followed by the complete text.
The top of another pg. 3 column has: "The Inauguration Ceremonies" which provides much detail, not surprising since this is a newspaper from the nation's capital. This report takes nearly the entire column.
Great to have this historic report in a newspaper from the city where the inauguration happened. Four pages, nice condition. The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
