Baltimore: Printed by William Ogden Niles, at the Franklin Press, 1825. Pp.33-48, thick deckled newsprint, unfastened, set double-column and folded to make 10x6.5 inch newspaper. Bears a single faint rubber stamp "Hamilton College Library" without further indication of ex libris status. Two old transverse folds but now flat, no splits, quite a good copy with scattered foxing and crimping. Sampling contents we see that "Gen. Lafayette is now on a tour through the southern states," &c; remarks on dueling; and most interestingly an exchange of letters between General Andrew Jackson and Hector Craig anent a "present of cloth to the late President Monroe" (Monroe's letter of acceptance, printed here also, composed just prior to his death). Jackson is serious about textile manufactures, here recalls how "during the last war, the melancholy spectacle was afforded of our utter inability to clothe either our soldiers or our ships" --find more textile ruminations further on. Also diplomatic news of "Projected Roads in Mexico," the "Prohibition of secret societies in Cuba," and longish extracts concerning Colombia and Buenos Ayres.
