Page 3 has: "The Jameses and the Youngers" which takes almost an entire column on these outlaws, including in part: "...the course of your contemporary, the St. Louis Dispatch, in relation to the noted outlaws--the James-Younger band...lost no opportunity of espousing the cause of these bandits & has consumed columns in endeavoring to create the impression...that the 'unfortunate' brothers are 'more sinned against than sinning'., in short, that they are innocent of early, if not all, the crimes laid to their charge..." and much more.
Ten pages, very nice condition.
