A captain is tarred & feathered...



Item # 669019

May 22, 1794

THOMAS'S MASSACHUSETTS SPY OR WORCESTER GAZETTE, May 22, 1794 

* 18th century American publication

A very ornate masthead makes this a displayable issue.
The middle of page 3 has an interesting item from Baltimore: "We have tarred & feathered the Captain of a vessel here for imprudently reversing the colours of the United States and placing the British above. It is said that the Captain has since drowned himself."
Many illustrated ads on the back page. Four pages, wide, never-trimmed margins, nice condition.
