Discussing the Jay Treaty... Slave-related ads...

Item # 684638

June 01, 1796

FEDERAL GAZETTE & BALTIMORE DAILY ADVERTISER, Maryland, June 1, 1796  Much of page 2 is taken up with a report from Congress: "On motion for making provision for carrying into effect the treaty with Great Britain." which refers to the controversial Jay Treaty.
The front page has an ad: "For Sale, For A Term of Years, A Negro Man about 22 years of age..." with details.
There are several runaway slave ads with details.
Four pages, purple colored staining affects the middle section but causes no loss of readability, otherwise in very nice condition.
