November 12, 1791

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, Nov. 12, 1791  

* President George Washington
* re. State of the Union Address

Almost half of the front page is taken up with: "Answers Of Both Houses of Congress to The President's Speech", meaning George Washington's 3rd annual state-of-the-union address.
The first column has "The Senate's Answer" which is signed in type: John Adams, Vice President of the United States & President of the Senate" to which the president gave a short reply, signed in type: G. Washington.
This is followed by the "Answer of the House of Representatives" to which the President replied as well, signed: Geo. Washington.
This is followed by various reports from "Congress, House of Representatives"  headed with an engraving of a heraldic eagle.
Page 2 has a report: "Federal City" which notes that "On Monday...the sale of the lots in the City of Washington commenced. About 40 lots were sold--the highest purchase 200 pounds...The cause why more lots were not sold was the great number of speculating Locusts, which swarmed on the spot." with just a bit more.
This great front page with the George Washington content makes it nice for display.
Four pages and in excellent condition.
