Near the back is "Domestic Miscellany" with the latest news reports of the day including talk of developing Presque Isle near Erie, methods of improving the navigation of the Susquehanna River, and mention of the situation with Indians, among other reports.
The plate called for is lacking.
Complete in 64 pages, 5 1/4 by 8 1/2 inches, first two leaves have some margin chipping and foxing, the balance of the issue is in nice condition.
