Item # 607203
July 21, 1880
KANSAS CITY DAILY JOURNAL, Missouri, July 21, 1880
* Outlaw Jesse James
* Mother of the bandit
Page 4 has nearly a full column on: "Mother Of Bandits" "Face to Face With the Avowed Slayer of One of Her Sons" "She Utters Her Terrible Threat of Vengance on His Head" "Mrs. Samuels Interviews Shephard and is Interviews by the 'Journal'." This is concerning the mother of Jesse James and his presumed murder by George Shepherd, however he wasn't killed until April, 1882. Fascinating reading nonetheless.
Eight pages, a piece from the right margin of the front leaf, irregular at the blank spine.
