Making a living lecturing on the outlaw Jesse James...



Item # 612152

June 7, 1882

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, June 7, 1882 

* re. Outlaw Jesse James

Keeping in mind that Jesse James was killed in nearby St. Joseph just 2 months previous, page 4 has an article: "The James Lecture". The article talks of the ethics of making a living by speaking about Jesse James, and including members of James' family as part of the presentation. One bit notes: "...That the widow should select this way of making money is not the least peculiar feature of the enterprise. it argues a lack of consciousness of the fact that her husband did not lead a strictly respectable life..." with more (see).
Twelve pages, lightly toned, very nice condition.
