Stopping the spread of Yellow Fever in 1798... A broadside "supplement"...
Item # 668961
October 13, 1798
FEDERAL GAZETTE & BALTIMORE DAILY ADVERTISER, Oct. 13, 1798
* Yellow fever epidemic in the East
The front page has: "A PROCLAMATION" by the mayor of Baltimore concerning the on-going Yellow Fever epidemic in the East and his efforts to prevent its spread noting: "...hereby forbidding the entrance into the city of Baltimore, or within 3 miles thereof, of all persons whomsoever who have come from the cities of New York or Philadelphia or the borough of Wilmington..." with more.
Of interest is the broadside Supplement issue included, a single sheet printed on the front only. Various European reports pus items headed: "Federal Gazette" and some ads. A few handwritten notations on the back otherwise blank.
Four pages, handsome masthead, nice condition.
