[Newport: Newport Mercury, 1813]. Broadside, 5-1/2" x 17-1/2". Text surrounded by attractive ornamental border. Uniformly tanned, a couple of light margin spots, shallow blank edge wear. Very Good.
It begins: "When rival Nations, great in Arms/ Great in Pow'r in Glory great/ Fill the whole World with war's alarms,/ And breathe a temporary Hate;/ The hostile storms but rage a-while,/ And the tir'd contest ends./ But, ah! how hard to reconcile/ The Foes who once were Friends!" The Address issued in the middle of the War of 1812.
The broadside was probably printed in late 1813, for distribution on January 1, 1814.
