THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 7, 1862
The front page has: "FROM THE SOUTHERN COAST", "Threatened Attack by the Rebels upon Jacksonville, Fla.", "NEWS FROM FORTRESS MONROE", "Cannonading Heard in the Direction of Yorktown", "GEN. BURNSIDE'S OPERATIONS", "NEWS FROM WASHINGTON", and more. The inside has news regarding the opening of a new Delmonico's Restaurant, "Iron-Clad Steamers - Necessity of Haste", and an interesting article headed: "The Evidences of Southern Civilization", with a mention of John Brown.
Complete in 8 pages, a little damp staining in the lower right corner, but otherwise quite nice.
