Page 2 has a very lengthy report concerning the Mountain Meadows Massacre and the trial of John D. Lee. At the top of the page is: "RETRIBUTION IN UTAH" "Execution of John D. Lee Today" "The Mountain Meadow Massacre of 1857--Details of the Great Crime". Other heads include: "The Murderer Taken to Execution" and then: "The Massacre And Trial" "History of the Deed as Now Generally Accepted In The West--Scenes On the Ground A Few Months After the Massacre--Efforts to Conceal it from the World" with this article taking about 1 1/2 columns with much detail on the event (see for portions).
Eight pages, some tears at margins, partially loose at the spine, otherwise in good condition but fragile so it must be handled carefully.
