* Philadelphia as the nation's capital
A fine example of a newspaper from the city which was the capital of the United States at the time, while the District of Columbia was under construction.
The ftpg. is filled with ads including a $100 Reward" ad for a runaway, while news reports are on the inside pages. More ads on the back page.
Four pages with never-trimmed margins (desired), very nice, clean condition.
