THE CINCINNATI DAILY GAZETTE, Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 6, 1870 Taking over 3 1/2 columns on the ftpg. is the: "President's Message" signed in type at it's conclusion by the President: U.S. Grant. This was his annual state-of-the-union address, with subheads including: "The Slave Trade Treaty" "Our Army" "The Indian Policy" "The Census" and more. The ftpg. also has: "Department Reports--Report of the Secretary of War".
Page 2 has an interesting article: "Beyond Yosemite--A Trip to Cathedral Valley--The Grandest Scenery in the Sierras--A Locality Well Worth the Visit of Tourists" which it certainly became. Some great description of the Western wonderland, and an early one at that.
Very large folio size, four pages, nice condition.
