Sale of a slave girl... Debating the Jay Treaty...
Item # 684639
June 02, 1796
FEDERAL GAZETTE & BALTIMORE DAILY ADVERTISER, Maryland, June 2, 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 the term of 10 Years, A likely healthy NEGRO GIRL..." with details.
Pages 3 & 4 have 3 runaway slave ads.
Four pages, purple colored staining affects the middle section but causes no loss of readability, otherwise in very nice condition.
