June 11, 1890
MEMPHIS APPEAL, Tennessee, June 11, 1890 Near the bottom of the ftpg. is: "After The Mormons" "Senator Edmunds Introduces a Bill Disposing of the Church Property" and next to it an article: "Through The Switch" "Robbers Throw a Train From the Track, Go Through the Express Safe and Escape", ending with: "...A posse of men...went in pursuit of the bandits, but as they had a good start it is not likely that they will be overhauled."
Complete in 8 pages, evenly toned, mostly loose at the spine, nice condition. Somewhat fragile so it must be handled carefully.
