This newspaper has one of the more decorative mastheads of the 18th century.
Much of page 2 is taken up with a report concerning the French Revolution, as well as a note that citizens: "...begged that the Convention would delay the discussion on the trial of Louis XVI for one month..." with more.
Page 3 has a lengthy article on the celebrations for: "Liberty and Equality" in Boston.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, five binding holes at the blank spine, small bit from a bottom margin affects no text, nice condition.
