June 05, 1799

THE SPECTATOR, New York, June 5, 1799  Most of the front page is taken up with the continuation of: "An Act to Regulate the Collection of Duties on Imports & Tonnage" which carries over to pg. 2 & is continued in a future issue. It is headed with an engraving of a heraldic eagle.
Page 2 has a short bit headed: "Trial of Fries" which relates, in an oblique way, to the Fries Rebellion. Page 2 also has a "Five Dollars Reward" ad for a runaway slave.
Four pages, good condition.
