Item # 657350
August 3, 1849
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Aug. 3, 1849
* Early life in California
Page 2 has a simply terrific & very lengthy letter on California, taking nearly two columns it is headed: "A Mexican View Of California" "California Seen by a Mexican--Description of the Country--Its Physical, Agricultural, Commercial, and Mineralogical Characteristics".
This is perhaps the best description of California from such an early date. The photos show only portions.
Page 2 also has: "Great Britain and the Slave Trade" taking most of a column. And page 3 has: "A Recommendation" concerning prayers for: "...the visitation of a fearful pestilence which is spreading its ravages throughout the land..." signed in type: Z. Taylor.
Four pages, very nice condition.
