The Weekly Register printed and published by Hezekiah Niles in Baltimore MD on South Street next door to the Merchants' Coffee House, $5.00 for one year.
Three issues from Volume IV: The Weekly Register of July 31 1813; Supplement to Oct 10 1813 (may be from Vol V); Appendix to Volume IV.
The regular issue is 16 pp, has no loose pp (first and last page is half loose), mild foxing. Lead article is call by President James Madison for a day of prayer by all Americans in regard to War of 1812. Interesting that the day is called "day of public humilation and prayer..."
Second aricle is about the unjust impeachment of American seamen; also has lengthy list of sailors on the British prison ship "San Antonio" who had previously been impressed and are now on prison ship. Third article about war in Europe, maily between Great Britain and Napolean/France.
Article about the treaty of Utrecht and right to stop any vessel and search it and apparently how British ships abuse the treaty. Nearly six full pages about "Events of the War." Includes info about Russian mediation to end the war, a battle near Fort George in upper New York or Canada in which one American prisoner/then casualty had his heart cut out and stuffed in his mouth, after which the American soldiers "are resolved to shew no quarters to the Indians...."
Addtional news is about British deserters near Batavia NY and the boasts of Sir James Yoe who would teach the Americans the rudiments of seamanship but who was at present without ships, having run them into a harbor on Lake Ontario and put the guns on land to defend against the American Navy. Many quotes of similar nature and many quotes from letters to folks back home.
Additional articles include proceedings of Congress and other various tidbits.
The second paper is a supplement to the Oct 10 1813 issue. It contains a lengthy sketch of La Plata in South America, which is today's Uruguay, Paraguay, part of Argentina and maybe more. Some misc war news, such as pilfering by British troops while in St Mary's County near Point Look Out in Maryland and the rape of slave women by British troops in Warwick County in Virginia.
Best article in supplement is the Revolution in Mexico has wrested control of Texas from Spain, according to Bernardo Gutierez in July 4 1813 letter reprinted in this supplement. The commander of the Northern Mexican Army gives special thanks to all the Americans who helped him to free Texas. Letter is about 16 column inches of fine print. The supplement is eight pp long and nearly all separate pp.
The third paper is an appendix to all of Volume IV and contains a copy of the constitution of Ohio and Louisiana and results of state elections in New York. It is eight pp long and is nearly separate pages.
