Item # 686032

July 05, 1794

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, July 5, 1794 

* President George Washington
* Samuel Adams

Almost the entire front page is taken up with: "An Act Laying Certain Duties Upon Snuff and Refined Sugar" which is signed in script type at its conclusion by the President: Go. Washington.
This is followed by two Acts of the Massachusetts legislature, carrying over to page 2, each signed in type: Samuel Adams. Page 2 also has a letter from Capt. Brant to the Indian Chief Cornplanter, dated at Mohawk Village.
Four pages, a discrete archival mend at the top of page 2, minor toning, nice condition.
