The President's message to Congress... William Cobbett's famous newspaper...
Item # 668896
March 20, 1798
PORCUPINE'S GAZETTE, Philadelphia, March 20, 1798
* Rare 18th century American publication
Page 2 has a lengthy address from the President to Congress concerning on-going troubles with France, signed in type: John Adams.
This was William Cobbett's important and controversial--but short-lived--daily newspaper.
Cobbett was a prolific & controversial publisher who often wrote under the pen-name of "Peter Porcupine." He was famous for sniping at his political opponents, usually those of a Jeffersonian-Republican sentiment.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, one very minor & discrete archival mend at the spine, nice condition.
