August 16, 1859
NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, Aug. 16, 1859
* Horace Greeley's overland journey
* Stops at Salt Lake City, Utah
Starting in the summer of 1859, Horace Greeley, the famed publisher if the New York Tribune, set out on an exploratory/investigative journey from New York to San Francisco via the Transcontinental Railroad, and had many of his observations printed within his paper while in route. Page six of this issue has: "AN OVERLAND JOURNEY - XIX. - From Bridger To Salt Lake", dated from Salt Lake City, July 11, 1859.
The report is extremely descriptive, beginning on page 6 and continuing for nearly 2 1/2 columns. Not surprisingly, his observations include much about Mormons, Salt Lake City, and he surrounding region.
Eight pages, a rough left spine, but overall good.
