Death of Henry Clay...

Item # 612879

July 02, 1852

WESTERN EMPORIUM, Germantown, Ohio, July 2, 1852 

* Rare title

This newspaper sports a very decorative masthead. The top of page 2 has a dramatic announcement of the: "Death Of HENRY CLAY !!" beginning: "Honorable Henry Clay departed this life at 25 minutes past 11 o'clock this morning, at Washington..." with a bit more. This report was taken from their "Extra" of June 29.
Four pages, some light damp staining, generally nice.
