cation of the Federal Gazette through December 31,
1806. In his farewell editorial, Brown stated that
one of the chief reasons for the dissolution of the
partnership - and the only reason which he would give
to the public - was the weight of years on the part
of one of the partners, and poor health on the part of
the other. So the newspaper, which had been continued
for twelve years by Yundt and Brown "without the scrawl
of a pen or a single word of dissention between the
partners"54 passed into the hands of John Hewes, who
professed "the most perfect accordance"55 with the
political principles of Yundt and Brown.
The Federal Gazette (the Baltimore Gazette from
1826 to its decease in 1838) continued as one of the
most Important Baltimore newspapers throughout the
period of its existence. Por a large oart of the
period 1815 to 1838, it was edited by William Gwynn,
a member of the Delphian literary club56 and for many
years a prominent Baltimore writer and business man.
Today, as one of the best known early newspapers, its
files are frequently consulted by research workers in
state and national historical subjects.
