Globe — Extra. / By F.P. Blair.....City of Washington.....1831. / Message / From the President of the United States / to both Houses of Congress, at the com- / mencement of the First Session of the 22d / Congress. / [followed by five columns of dense text separated by thin rules]. Signed in type at the end "Andrew Jackson / Washington, December 6, 1831."

Washington, DC: The Globe, 1831. Printed broadside extra, 23 x 15 inches, employing a large display type for the head. President Andrew 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 foreshadowing of the nullification controversy that would arise in the following years. It does address the Native American policy: "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 (which does locate one copy of Jackson's 1832 address printed as a Globe extra). Folded (small breaks at fold corners, affecting several letters); old tideline and browning, hole in top margin (not affecting text). Still a very good example. (#5102). Item #58086
