Great letter of emigrants heading to California... Funeral of Dolly Madison...
Item # 657385
July 17, 1849
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., July 17, 1849
* California gold rush - 49ers
* Dolly Madison death
Page 3 has: "The Overland California Emigrants" which includes a terrific letter on a long wagon train heading: "...towards the golden regions of California...that a collision had taken place between a party of emigrants and some Indians..." with more. Great letter on the romance of gold-seekers heading west.
Also: "Funeral of the Late Mrs. Madison" being the famed Dolly Madison; and: "From Santa Fe" which is rather lengthy (see).
Four pages, very nice condition. Very minor loss to a lower, blank corner not close to any text.
