FRIENDSHIP WEEKLY REGISTER, Allegany County, New York, June 13, 1889
* The great Johnstown flood of 1889

Page 2 has much coverage of the Johnstown Flood, with column heads: "THE GREAT CALAMITY" "Late Details of the Situation of Affairs in the Flooded Region" "Searching For the Dead and Relieving the Living" plus there are two illustrations of the devastation as well. The article takes over half of the page.
Eight pages, even browning with some margin tears & minor margin chipping. Should be handled carefully.
