The Great Clay Festival! - The New York Weekly Tribune Newspaper July 9, 1842


The front page of this newspaper is entitled 'The Great Clay Festival' on the left and the rest of the front is full of praise for Henry Clay. Inside the paper is a very interesting set of articles on what is called: 'Association; Or The Principles of a True Organization of Society' where there are 'producers' and 'non-producers' with women children, and servants in the First Division of non-producers. It is an interesting set of articles, lists, and ideas that really need to be read to be believed. 
There are a couple of other articles on what is called the 'Rhode Island problem' and it is a story that does not seem to have made it into the history books again. This is the story of Thomas Dorr, a Democrat of Rhode Island, who led, basically, an uprising or insurgency against to overthrow what he called 'Rhode Island's ruling regime and declared his willingness to die in the attempt to upset the sitting governor and become governor himself. These are two articles that need to be read and re-read to get the entire story. 
This easy to read newspaper is 16" x 22".
