Item # 691035

September 25, 1795

KENTISH GAZETTE, Canterbury, England, Sept. 25, 1795 

* Uncommon 18th century publication
* re. John Jay's Treaty - George Washington

A handsome issue of the 18th century, with two decorative embellishments in the masthead & ornate lettering in the title.
Page 3 has  a brief report noting: "...arrived in the Clyde, from Norfolk, Virginia, several American newspapers have been received...Almost all these papers teem with debates and resolutions against the treaty negotiated by Mr. Jay with this country, but notwithstanding the factious opposition made to the ratification of the Treaty, it has been approved by two-thirds of the Senate, by all the Merchants of character and respectability, and rectified by the President."
Four pages, very nice condition.
