July 09, 1796
COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, July 9, 1796
* President George Washington
Over half of the front page is taken up with the full text from Congress of: "An ACT to Ascertain & For the Military Establishment of the United States" which is signed in script type by the President: Go. Washington. This was one of very few newspapers which used script type when printing documents or letters from President Washington, making this a displayable issue given its front page presentation.
Four pages, light foxing, nice condition.
