The issue is filled mostly with an eclectic collection of articles, while the back three pages contain news items of the day.
Among the articles is: "Character of the Dunkers" which begins: "The Dunkers, or German Baptists, in Pennsylvania, and the starters adjacent, who take the Scriptures as their one guide..." with more.
The news reports include at least two items concerning a treaty with the Indians.
Certainly one of the less common 18th century American magazine titles, existing from just 1790 to 1797.
No plates are present.
Complete in 64 pages, lacking a full title/contents page, 5 by 7 3/4 inches, good condition.
