Uncommon to find period Kit Carson reports...

Item # 657313

August 24, 1847

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Aug. 24, 1847  The top of page 3 has a report: "From The Western Plains" with a rather rare report on the famed Kit Carson: "...it seems probable that Kit Carson, who was going out with dispatches to California, has lost all his horses and mules. He was seen near the Pawnee Rock & afterwards heard from by a party who said they had passed him the day following...From Carson's well-known knowledge of the woods & familiarity with the Indian character...".
Four pages, some foxing, the back leaf has a portion torn away but not even close to the Kit Carson report.
