Item # 678322
October 14, 1858
NEW YORK HERALD, Oct. 14, 1858 The top of the front page has: "THE OVERLAND MAIL", "TEN DAYS LATER FROM CALIFORNIA", "INTERESTING FROM OREGON", "News from the Seat of War in Washington Territory", and more. News includes the announcement that the telegraph would soon connect Placerville, California and Salt Lake City - ultimately opening communication between the latter and major cities throughout the country. Interesting reading.
Eight pages, nice condition.
