Napoleon Bonaparte has gone "strayed or lost"...
Item # 668966
October 25, 1798
FEDERAL GAZETTE & BALTIMORE DAILY ADVERTISER, Oct. 25, 1798 Page 3 has an interesting tongue-in-cheek report concerning Napoleon Buonaparte, whose army was recently defeated with his escape. It is headed: "Strayed Or Lost" and notes in part: "A Little, thin, fallow looking man, known by the name of Buonaparte. The last tie he was heard of was when he set sail from Malta..." with much more, then: "...Whoever will give such intelligence as may enable admiral Nelson to bring him to St. James's shall be handsomely rewarded. N.B. A handsome reward will also be given to any one who will tell where admiral Nelson is."
Four pages, handsome masthead, nice condition.
