COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, Aug. 1, 1798 

* President John Adams
* 3 Acts of U.S. Congress

The front page has two Acts of Congress each signed in script type by the President: John Adams. Page 3 also has an Act of Congress signed in script: John Adams.
The front page includes two desertion ads beginning: "Deserted from the United States ship of war Delaware, Stephen Decatur, Esq. Commander, Joseph Porter..." with details; and: "Deserted from the United States frigate Constitution, Samuel Nicholson Esq Commander, the following seamen and marines..." with a list and detail.
The back page has 2 military ads, one for: "Marines Wanted...a number of healthy young men to swerve as marines on board the U.S. ship Herald...".
Four pages, a bit of staining on the front page, but overall nice.
