This was obviously a Republican newspaper, as near the top of the front page is campaign ad supporting: "For President, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, of Illinois - For Vice President, HANNIBAL HAMLIN, of Maine" and noting Nov. 6 as the date for the election (see). The ftpg. also has a bit stating the newspaper: "...its earnest support to the Republican cause, and aid in the election of LINCOLN AND HAMLIN." (see)
Various news & ads of the day, four pages, large folio size, rejoined at the spine, nice condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
