An engraving of an Embargo political cartoon...

Item # 667353

September 10, 1808

NEW YORK EVENING POST, Sept. 10, 1808  Page 3 begins with a little political cartoon titled: "A Good Story Twice Told: or, the Allegorical Snake" which concerns the controversy over the Embargo.
Rare to find such political cartoons in newspapers of such an early date.
Page 2 has several items concerning the controversial Embargo, one item beginning: "The answer of the President to the Boston Petition will be read with deep interest, sorrow, and humiliation by every patriotic American. The refusal to suspend the Embargo..." with more.
Then: "President's Answer to the Boston Petition" which has a brief note signed; Thomas Jefferson.  Then a lengthier letter signed in type: Th. Jefferson.
Four pages, some foxing, some wear at the margins.
