Item # 649870
July 31, 1860
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 31, 1860
* Mormons & Salt Lake City
* Early baseball & Pony Express
Over an entire column on the front page is taken up with: "Affairs In Utah--Celebration of the National Anniversary at Salt Lake City--The Grain Crops--How the Presidential Nominations are Received". Also on the front page: "Base Ball--Atlantic Club vs. Mutual Club" with much detail and the box score. Difficult to find pre-Civil War baseball game reports.
Page 5 has: "Arrival Of The Pony Express--News From the Pacific Coast" with a St. Joseph dateline & the text beginning: "The Pony Express, through in ten days, has just reached here with a general summary of news from California..." which follows.
Eight pages, loss to a lower corner of the back leaf, binding slits at the blank spine, good condition.
