    George Washington: 1832 Centennial Ephemera. The 100th anniversary of Washington's birth was truly the first major milestone and national celebration in American history, eclipsing the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence (overshadowed by the simultaneous passing of Adams and Jefferson on that otherwise auspicious date). We offer: 1) an 80-page booklet in titled wraps of "Mr. [Francis] Gray's Oration on Washington's Birth Day, 1832" delivered before the Legislature of Massachusetts", 2) 10" x 15" broadside issued in connection with Gray's oration and observances held that day at the Old South Meeting House, and 3) a copy of "Poulson's American Daily Advertiser" for Washington's Birthday, February 22, 1832, reprinting his Farewell Address on page one.
