* Early California
* Need for settlers
Page 2 contains a quite lengthy, detailed, and very early description of: "California" as the article is headed. The article focuses on the various trades which are desperately needed in California, encouraging: "Tradesmen of all kinds...to emigrate here for here there are next to none..." (see for the beginning).
Page 3 has some reports including: "Army Orders" from the Mexican War.
Four pages, light damp staining to the right side, generally nice.
