Message / From the President of the United State /s to both Houses of Congress, at the com- / mencement of the First Session of the 22nd / Congress [caption title, followed by five columns of dense text, separated by thin rules].

Washington, (DC): Globe - Extra [printed at head of sheet}, [edited] by F.P. Blair, 1831. Broadside newspaper extra, 23 x 15 inches, large display type for "Globe - Extra." Jackson's 1831 state of the union message. A rosy picture of affairs, with plentiful crops and commerce, amicable relations with nations around the world, etc.; no mention of the nullification controversy that would arise the following years. Only the Native American discord: "It is commonly believed that perseverance for a few years in the present policy of the Government, will extinguish the Indian title to all lands lying within the States composing our Federal Union, and remove beyond their limits every Indian who is not willing to submit to their laws." Not recorded separately on OCLC. Folded (small break at several corner folds), old tideline and browning; hole in top margin (not affecting text). Still a good example. Item #51402

Price: $1,250.00
