* re. The Whiskey Rebellion

Page 2 has an: "ACT Making an Appropriation to Satisfy Certain demands attending the late Insurrection...", which provided money: "...to the discharge of certain incidental demands, occasioned by the trial of persons for crimes and offences during the late insurrection...", referring to the Whiskey Rebellion.
The back page has an ad for: "Negro Tom" describing: "A Black Man, about 5 feet 6 inches high...ran off from Fell's Point on Sunday..." then describing his clothing, etc. And elsewhere are two additional slave-related advertisements.
Four pages, two stab slits in the first column cause minor loss, otherwise very nice condition.
