* Rare 18th century American title

Eighteenth century American publications are somewhat scarce. The capital of the United States was in Philadelphia at this time while the District of Columbia was under construction. Contains news of the day with several advertisements including one on the back page for the runaway of a Negro fellow. (see)
Four pages, untrimmed, tiny binding slits along the spine, very nice condition.
