National Intelligencer
Washington, DC
December 22, 1800

The National Intelligencer was the first newspaper printed in Washington DC.  when the seat of government was moved there in October of 1800 from Philadelphia.  This newspaper was part of the first Volume series.

In 1800, at the end of  the undeclared war between France and the United States, the two nations drew up an agreement that restored normal diplomatic relations between the two nations and annulled the 1778 treaty  between France and the United States that had begun during the Revolution, and extended “most-favored” trading status to each signee.

This newspaper prints this historic agreement in its entirety and is one of the few copies in existence.  It is in very good condition and makes a great addition to any US History Collection.

Also in this newspaper are other articles, ads, and announcements that were important in this time including  detailed, first hand reports of the infamous Black Hole of Calcutta.

Our collection contains at least 50 additional issues of the National Intelligencer’s first volume.  Contact us to find out more about specific dates or events of interest that occurred between 1800 and 1801.
