Message from John Jay... William Cobbett's famous newspaper...



Item # 668898

March 13, 1798

PORCUPINE'S GAZETTE, Philadelphia, March 13, 1798  The top of page 3 has a message from the governor of New York to the state Senate concerning "disorderly persons" in Livingston, signed in type: John Jay, who previously was the first Chief Justice of the United States.
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, nice condition.
