Item # 693483

November 30, 1815

NATOINAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Nov. 30, 1815 Page 3 has a lengthy article--a full column--headed: "Waterloo" "Extracts of a letter from an American Gentleman in Europe tro his Friend in Portsmouth". 
The letter details his visit to the site of the historic Battle of Waterloo, which is very descriptive.  Five months earlier Napoleon was defeated by armies led by the Duke of Wellington.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, good condition.
