June 02, 1865

NEW YORK HERALD, June 2, 1865 

* Frederick Douglass speech
* Eulogy on Abraham Lincoln

The front page includes: "The South After War" "Deplorable Impoverishment of the Country" "The Negro's Idea of His New Born Liberties" "the Assassination" & more.
But the best item in this issue is the front page: "Oration of Fred. Douglass" on the life of Abraham Lincoln. It begins: "Attracted by the announcement that the distinguished orator, Frederick Douglass, was to speak upon Abraham Lincoln, a large audience, made up of about equal proportions of white and colored people, filled last night to its full capacity the large hall of the Cooper Institute..." with much more (see).
Eight pages, very nice condition.
