NEW YORK SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE, New York, December 28, 1880
* Reverend Henry Ward Beecher
* Jewish - Jews - Judaica support
Page 4 has a report headed: "Persecution Of The Jews" "Review of The Petition To Bismarck" which takes over 1 1/2 columns. This is an address of: "..the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher's protest against the persecution of the Jews in Germany....I have been asked to unite with other ministers of the Gospel in a respectful remonstrance against the incipient steps which are now being taken against the Jews in Germany..." with much more. The photos show about half of the article. Other news of the day.
Complete in 16 pages, somewhat fragile at the margins, generally nice.
