BOSTON EVENING TRANSCRIPT, July 18, 1881 

* Outlaw Jesse James gang

Near the top of page 2 is a article: "Desperadoes On the Rail" "A Western Express Robbed and The Conductor and A Passenger Murdered". The article begins: "One of the most daring of recent crimes was committed on board a train on the Rock Island road near Winston, Ks...The robbers were six in number and are supposed to be under the leadership of Jesse James..." with much more on the detail.
This was one or the more infamous of the James Gang robberies. Much is written about it on the internet.
Eight pages, nice condition.
