This 4 page newspaper has news of the day. Several interesting advertisements tell the way life was back then.
A page 2 report says: "At Sitka the land speculators are beginning to buy up ground, in view of the anticipated...settlement and development of our new Territory of Alaska..." & mention that politicians will be flocking there to seek elected office.
Made of rag paper, this issue is in nice condition.
