    [Slavery] National Intelligence Newspaper. Vol. 34, No. 4908, four pages, 18.5" x 21.5", Washington [D. C.], May 14, 1833. Above the title is inscribed the name "J. Thorndike" in ink. The bottom margin also bears an illegible inscription in ink. The front page bears an article titled "Protection of Slave Property." The article continues and cites a contemporary case of a slave owner who travels to Pennsylvania from New Jersey to recover a fugitive slave. The locals protest and the owner, along with his companions, is jailed for two days. He is tried for kidnapping, acquitted, and returns home with his "property." It ends by saying: "This is the protection we give to runaway slaves - and such are the impediments we oppose to the constitutional rights of their masters!" The edges are chipped and the pages are toned with some foxing. Fold breaks occurring on the main and secondary vertical folds. Staining on all pages near the middle, but the text remains legible and unaffected. Good condition.
