NEW YORK HERALD, July 23, 1873 

* Jesse James-Younger Gang

Page 6 has an editorial on the first train robbery by Jesse James and the James Gang, although the men were not identified at the time of this report.
The editorial is headed: "Highwaymen on the Rail" See images for text. This holdup took place just a few days earlier.
Twelve pages, a few archival mends on unrelated pages, generally very nice.
