Horace Greeley interviews Brigham Young at Salt Lake City...

Item # 672033

August 20, 1859

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Aug. 20, 1859 

* Horace Greeley interrogates Brigham young
* Mormons - Mormonism - Salt Lake City, Utah
* Subjects of polygamy - slavery - his multiple wives

During this time famed Tribune publisher Horace Greeley took a trip to the West and wrote a series of articles on his adventures. Of his many published articles this may be the best and most desired.
Taking a full column on page 5 and more than a column on page 6 is: "An Overland Journey - Two Hours With Brigham Young" which is datelined at Salt Lake City, Utah, July 13, 1859.
This is a wonderful interview printed here verbatim. And Greeley being this newspaper's publisher this interview will not be found in other newspapers.
Complete in 8 pages, archivally strengthened at the spine, a bit close-trimmed at the right margin with the mentioned article just shaving a few letters, causing no loss of readability (see photos). Also a printing crease near the top of the interview also causes no loss of readability.

Eight pages, good condition.
