Page 3 has an interesting report from Savannah with a tongue-in-check heading: "The Land Of Liberty!!  A Curiosity!!!", the report noting: "Just arrived from Cape Mount on the ...coast of Africa, the ship Agenoria, Edward Boss, master, with a prime cargo of assorted SLAVES. The sale of which will commence on Monday...".
Rare to find reports of the arrival of slave ships.
Four pages a few small archival mends, never-trimmed margins, nice condition.
