A fine issue has more than half of the front page & a bit of page 2 are taken up with Thomas Jefferson's state-of-the-union address to the nation.
Within the address Jefferson reflects upon the events of the past year and needs for the coming year, which includes mention of current relations with Indians. He also makes reference to the Louis and Clark Expedition with: "A state of our progress in exploring the principal rivers of that country, and of the information respecting them hitherto obtained, will be communicated so soon as we shall receive some further relations which we have reason shortly to expect." It is signed by him in type at its conclusion: Th. Jefferson.
Page 2 also has a very lengthy: "Remarks on the President's Message to Congress".
Four pages, very nice condition.
