Davy Crockett denies the recent book on him is his memoirs...



Item # 665914

January 11, 1834

ATKINSON'S SATURDAY EVENING POST, Philadelphia, Jan. 11, 1834 

* Rare Davy Crockett report

Page 2 has a quite small, inconspicuous item noting: "Col. Davy Crocket [Crockett], in a letter to the editors of the National Intelligencer denies the authenticity of the book lately published, purporting to be his memoirs, and says that he is now writing his own life & adventures, which will probably be in print before the termination of the present session of Congress."
Four pages, minor margin tears, good condition.
