Item # 686852
June 16, 1798
COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, June 16, 1798
* John Adams & Thomas Jefferson
* (2) Acts of Congress
Most of the last column on the front page is taken up with two Acts of Congress, each signed in script type by the President: John Adams, and in block type by the Vice President: Th. Jefferson. One is for erecting light houses and the other is for purchasing ships. The front page also notes that John Adams was elected president of the Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Page 2 has two letters signed in type by John Adams, in response to letters to him from the towns of Wells and Concord, Mass.
Four pages, small loss to an upper corner affects 3 words at the top of page 2, otherwise nice condition.
