Item # 546330

February 08, 1862

WILKES' SPIRIT OF THE TIMES, New York, NY, February 8, 1862.

* Salt
* Boxing

This issue contains a rather lengthy article concerning "the Salting of the Streets of Philadelphia", which goes into some detail about the benefits of salt.

Another article found within this issue and entitled: "Our Chess Department" includes a "problem of the week" and the answer to the previous weeks' problem.

This 16 page issue also includes some Civil War reports as well as other sports items, including boxing, horse racing, and cricket.  Although this issue is in nice condition overall, a hole caused by burning can be found on every page which does not effect the content.
