Polygamy among the Mormons... John Wilkes Booth's horse...



Item # 665671

January 14, 1881

FINDLAY DAILY JEFFERSONIAN, Ohio, Jan. 14, 1881 

* Polygamy & the Mormons
* John Wilkes Booth's horse


Page 2 has two interesting, brief items: "It is asserted that the horse which John Wilkes Booth rode to the place of his capture after President Lincoln's assassination, belongs to an Abington, Mass. man & is a good traveler, though 23 yrs old." 
Also: "The shutting out of Congress of the Polygamist Cannon is really the most severe blow that has yet been dealt to Mormonism..." with more on this, ending with: "...and the big gun of polygamy must retire."
Four pages, archival mend at the blank spine, nice condition.
