HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, May 15, 1858 Certainly the prime content is half of the doublepage centerfold, being a great print of a: "General View of Salt Lake City, Utah Territory" which is an overview of the city.

The front page shows: 'Hon. Jacob Collamer, United States Senator from Vermont'. Prints inside include: "Travel Notes in Bible Lands" which has an illustration of "Laodicea"; "St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal Church, Fourth Avenue, New York" which accompanies an article on "Rev. John M'Clintock, D.D." with a print of him as well. An article: "The 'Susquehanna' and Her Last Cruise" also features a full page illustration of: "The United States Steam Frigate 'Susquehanna'".
A very displayable issue.
