Pg. 2 has an endorsement: "For President: JEFFERSON DAVIS, Of Mississippi. For Vice President: ALEX. H. STEPHENS, Of Georgia." Also on pg. 2 are: "The Confederate Loan" "Southern Men to be Handcuffed & Used as a Breastwork" "Retaliation" "East Gettessee Getting All rights" "Effects of the Manassas Battle" "Loss of the Yankees" with more war content carrying over to pg. 4.
Four pages, scattered light foxing, the subscriber's name penned above the masthead, very nice condition.
