THE DAILY UNION, Washington, D.C., Oct. 13, 1849
* Colt Revolver Ad
* Runaway slave ad
* Gold Rush era newspaper
The front page is filled with ads including a: "$150 Reward" ad for a runaway slave, with details. Beneath this is an ad: "Colt's Improved Repeating Pistols" signed in type: Samuel Colt. (see)
Four pages, a little stray period writing within the masthead, generally very nice.
