Jesse James report, from very close to his hometown...
Item # 610820
May 11, 1880
KANSAS CITY DAILY JOURNAL, Missouri, May 11, 1880
* Jesse & Frank James
* Outlaws - train robbers
Kansas City newspapers are among the best for any report concerning Jesse James and the James Gang, as nearly St. Joseph (53 miles north) was their home & where Jesse would be killed in 1882.
Page 2 has a nearly half column report headed: "THE JAMES BOYS" "They Are Reported to Have Been in Mexico Last Winter" "After the Date on Which George Shepherd Claims to Have Shot Jesse". Interesting reading (see).
Eight pages, light toning at margins, nice condition.
