Boston, 1785. 4pp. Small folio. Old folds. Minor loss at one fold. Lightly soiled. Contemporary notation at tope of first page. 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 a letter, reprinted from Isaiah Thomas's paper the MASSACHUSETTS SPY, on the stagnant economy and the need for Americans to support native manufactures and goods in order to stimulate the economy and spur America on to her destiny as a wealthy and productive nation.
