About this Item

Folio (13¼" X 19½"). Self-cover. 4pp. Good plus. Mildly and evenly age toned, with mild edgewear; separated at fold. Overall clean and attractive, though, easily legible and quite handleable. A nice copy of the October 21st, 1814 issue (No. 1, Vol. 4) of this weekly, which was founded in 1811 and in 1814 changed ownership when Nathan Hale acquired it and changed the name to the "Boston Weekly Messenger," also changing the size and format. This issue is filled with notable War of 1812 news, the front page including two lengthy communications signed in type by U.S. commissioners JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, HENRY CLAY, ALBERT GALLATIN, J.A. BAYARD and JONATHAN RUSSELL, reporting on their attempts to negotiate a peace treaty at Ghent. There's also (page 2) an "Official Account of the Repulse of the British at Mobile" and (page 4) a "Biographical Sketch of Lieut. John G. Cowall, Late of the U.S. Navy." A fine period piece.
