Boston, 1785. 4pp. Small folio. Old folds. Minor losses and wear at some folds. Lightly soiled. About very good. THE MASSACHUSETTS CENTINEL, an influential Federalist newspaper, was called by some the most enterprising newspaper in the state. Although the paper's byline was: "Uninfluenced by Party, we aim to be JUST," its publisher, Benjamin Russell, was a thorough-going Federalist, and made his paper the leading Federalist organ in New England. This issue contains some news of a plan by England to colonize New Holland (i.e., Australia) with convicts. Also, letters to the editor, editorials, and a note that the federal Congress is removing to New York for its next session. (Inventory #: WRCAM43168)
