1849 Gold Rush Era...
California... a woman's persective...
Item # 594707
February 14, 1849
THE VERMONT CHRONICLE (weekly), Windsor, February 14, 1849
* Gold Rush era original... with gold rush content
* Rare to find a woman's perspective on gold rush pursuits
This Vermont newspaper has both religious/Christian-themed news along with general news of the day. Page 4 has coverage related to the gold rush era, "A Lady's Experience of California", which takes nearly half a column (see images).
Additional news of the day with period advertising throughout. Complete in 4 pages, minor fold wear, and in overall good condition due to the use of high-quality rag paper during this period in newspaper printing. The last page does have some inconsequential loss to the right margin (see image), and both leaves have a minor non-archival tape mend.
