Item # 668152
April 16, 1833
NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., April 16, 1833
* Treasury Building (Washington, D.C.)
* Arson fire disaster
Most of page 2 and even a vbit of page 3 are taken up with a wealth of reporting and details on this burning of the Treasury Building. Included is: "Note of the President Directing an Investigation in Relation to the Fire" signed in type: Andrew Jackson.
The Treasury Building was totally destroyed save for the fireproof vaults, the act of an arsonist hoping to destroy incriminating evidence against him.
Great to have this report in this famous paper from the nation's capital.
Four pages, nice condition.
