Item from Sojourner Truth...



Item # 174646

March 11, 1882

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, March 11, 1882  Perhaps the most interesting item in this issue is just a small, inconspicuous item on page 3 under the "Personal" column reading: "Sojourner Truth writers to us from Battle Creek, Michigan, in reference to recent published paragraphs of her having a fine home, and her having made a will, etc. She says she has made no will, owns no farm, but has a small house encumbered by a mortgage, and has no income but what she derives from the narrative of her life and sale of her photograph, which she hopes, and we hope, her friends will buy to help her along in this one-hundred-and-seventh year of her stay on earth."  She would pass away the following year.
Among the many prints in this issue are: "The Legislative Train, from Albany to New York" showing people in a plush train car; a full page containing 8 prints on: "Duck Shooting Near the Capes of Delaware"; a full page: "Feeding the Squirrels in Union Square"; a small print of; "The New Fatigue Uniform--Infantry"; three-quarters of a page with 3 prints on "The Great Floods" on the lower Mississippi, as well as "Water Street, Cincinnati" and "Belleview and Isabella Streets, Newport, Kentucky".
Also a one-third page print: "Mole, Ferry Slip, and Depot, Oakland, California" and a one-third page of: "The New Fulton Market, New York City".
