February 23, 1797
THE NEW WORLD, Philadelphia, Feb. 23, 1797
* Society of the Cincinnati
* President George Washington
A quite scarce title, and until a recent find, the very first we have offered in our 44 years. It published for exactly one year.
Page 3 has an address of the Philadelphia militia to George Washington, with his response signed in type: Go. Washington. And followed by the address of the Penna. Society of the Cincinnati to him, again with the: "President's Answer" signed in type: Go. Washington. Nice to have in a Philadelphia publication.
Page 3 also has a letter from France signed by: Benj. Franklin, dated May 12, 1783.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, very nice condition.
