PUBLIC LEDGER, Philadelphia, July 29, 1895

The top of the front page has one column headings that include: "THREE HOLMES VICTIMS" "Their Skeletons Now In The Possession Of The Chicago Police" "More Evidence Of Murder" and more. (see) Lengthy text continues on page 2. Great to have in a Philadelphia paper, the city where he was being held. Coverage on the recent murders by H. H. Holmes, who is considered to be America's first serial killer.
Other news of the day. Complete in 16 pages, light toning, some spine wear, generally good. Should be handled with care.
