George Washington document on the front page...



Item # 665496

April 27, 1796

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, April 27, 1796 

* President George Washington

The top half of the front page has an Act of Congress concerning the erection of a lighthouse on Baker's Island in Massachusetts, signed in script type by the President: Go. Washington, and in block type by the Vice President: John Adams. Such script signature documents on the front page are increasingly difficult to find in 18th century American newspapers.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the right margins, good condition.
