General Wayne concludes a treaty with the Indians...



Item # 700272

September 01, 1795

NEW YORK MAGAZINE OR LITERARY REPOSITORY, September, 1795  

* Treaty of Greenville
* Mad Anthony Wayne
* Northwest Indians


The issue is filled mostly with an eclectic collection of articles, while the back four pages contain news items of the day.
Among the articles are: "Description of Charles River Bridge" (plate lacking), and "A Dissertation on the Means of Preserving Health in Charleston and the Adjacent Low Country" which takes 5 pages.
Among the news items is mention that: "...intelligence...from Pittsburgh that on the third of August a treaty was concluded by General Wayne with all the Western Indians."
Certainly one of the less common 18th century American magazine titles, existing from just 1790 to 1797.
No plates are present.
Complete in 64 pages, lacking a full title/contents page, 5 by 8 inches, good condition.
