One of the earliest James Gang reports to be found...
Item # 661666
May 24, 1867
NEW YORK HERALD, May 24, 1867 Page 3 has an inconspicuous report headed: "Murder And Bank Robbery In Missouri" stating in part: "...today fourteen men entered the bank house of Hughes & Wasson, in Richmond, Mo., robbed the money tray, and killed a man named Shaw and two others..." with a bit more.
As noted on the web this was one of the earliest robberies by the infamous James Gang.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
