ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, May 20, 1882
* Frank James
* Outlaws - train robbers
Page 6 has an uncommonly lengthy report concerning the outlaw Frank James, but perhaps not surprising given that Missouri was the home state of the James Gang & much of their "work" was perpetrated in Missouri. The top of a column has: "FRANK JAMES" "The Story of His Presence in St. Louis & Proffered Surrender" "The Bandit's Bride--An Interview with Capt. Craig--What the Relatives Say--Mrs. Samuels Does Not Know the Whereabouts of Her Boy--Minnesota's Claim" plsu there are subheads including: "Mrs. Frank James Returns Home" and "The Ford Boys Again". This very detailed article takes 1 1/2 columns, much lengthier than typically found in period newspapers. Keep in mind this was less than 2 months after the killing of Jesse James.
Eight pages, some minor margin tears, generally nice condition.
