October 11, 1834

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Oct. 11, 1834 

* Ursuline Convent riots

Perhaps the most historic content is the 4+ pages dedicated to the: "Ursuline Convent at Charlestown", Massachusetts, which was burned by a hateful mob of Protestants. Additionally, page 2 has an interesting article on the Boston Tea Party and a discovery of a tea chest, headed: "A Tea Story". Also inside: "Abolition of Slavery", "Interview With Ex-President Adams", and over half a page on: "Rocky Mountain Correspondence" which is an early report on explorations of the West, and contains a letter datelined: "Waters of the Colorado of the West, June 23, 1834". 
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice 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."
