COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, Dec. 19, 1795
* President George Washington
* State of the Union Address
Over half of the front page is taken up with the "President's Address" being George Washington's annual state-of-the-union address for the year 1795, a tradition he started in his first administration and which continues to this day.
The "Speech" as it is headed, is prefaced with: "This day, precisely at 12 o'clock, The President of the United States met both Houses of Congress in the hall of the Representatives, and addressed them in the following..." (see for beginning & end). Page 2 has some items which were in response to the President's address. The bkpg. has 16 illustrated ship ads.
Four pages, various foxing a bit irregular at the right margin not affecting any text, good condition.
