Comments: An entire issue of a Boston newspaper with mostly political content. The American Apollo was only published from January 6, 1792 to December 25, 1794. The entire front page is an article by William Fox, the political reformer, pamphleteer, and bookseller from London, entitled, " Thoughts on the Death of the King of France". Most of the 2nd and 3rd pages consists of a reprinting of a letter from Thomas Jefferson, as Secretary of State, to Gouverneur Morris, Minister Plenipotentiary to France. Jefferson writes against French provocations during the "Citizen Genet Affair" and other maritime actions that go against George Washington's policy of neutrality during the War between France and Great Britain. Jefferson writes extensively of the visit of French Minister, Edmond Genet, to the United States including Genet's attempts to enlist American ships in Charleston, South Carolina, as privateers against English ships. Jefferson mentions frequently how opposed he is to Genet's actions in America.

The book was in my mailbox when I got home last night. Wonderful condition for a 40-year-old book. Nice condition in any case. I am very pleased. Thank you. A bit of trivia: You are only the second seller in six years not to tape the pull strip so it canít be used! Congratulations. Take care, and many, many thanks. I was really looking forward to this one, and you didnít disappoint. - G.W.
