This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 3 has an article headed: "The Colored Immigrants" "Brief Description of Their Reception and Condition at Wyandotte" and more. (see) Text takes up more than a full column.
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 12 pages, nice condition.
