Mormon content: report on Joe Smith...

Item # 673131

September 17, 1842

NILES' NATIONAL REGISTER, Baltimore, Sept. 17, 1842  

* Mormons - Mormonism
* Joseph Smith
* re. Webster–Ashburton Treaty

The back page has a brief yet rather rare report with a mini-head: "Joe Smith" stating: "This wonderful fellow is to be bodily absent from his people for ten years; so say the latest accounts." 
Just before this is a small article: "Slave Trade", and several pages are taken up with: "Northeastern & Northwestern Boundary" with Canada, being correspondence between Lord Ashburton and Daniel Webster.
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 by 12 inches, nice condition.

As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
