President Monroe addresses the country...

Item # 689414

December 08, 1821

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Dec. 8, 1821 

* President James Monroe
* State of the Union Address

Perhaps the best item in this issue is the complete printing of President James Monroe's annual state-of-the-union address in which he recounts the events of the year 1821 and makes plans for the future.
This address takes nearly 5 pages, and is the continuation of an annual tradition which began with George Washington and continues to this day. The end of the address is signed by him in type: James Monroe.
Among the other reports in this issue are: "Navigation of the Susquehanna" "Descent of the Susquehanna" and various reports from Congress.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, in very good condition.

As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
