Much reporting from the Pike's Peak Gold Rush...

Item # 683850

September 28, 1858

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Sept. 28, 1858  

* Pike's Peak gold rush
* Kansas Territory boom

Page 3 has a detailed article headed: "The Kansas Gold Region", which we now call the Pike's Peak Gold Rush. At the time Pike's Peak was in the Western Kansas Territory, the Colorado Territory not being formed until 1861. 
The report notes near the beginning: "...much excitement prevails in those quarters about ehe new gold discoveries in Kansas & that companies are starting every week for the border towns for the purpose of trying their fortunes in the wilderness where the precious metal is said to exist..." with much more. 
Four pages, nice condition. The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
