The back page has a heading: "Mormons" which includes: "...meeting...was called...to take into consideration their relation with the Mormons...a good deal of excitement exists against them & apprehensions of a serious riot and outbreak were entertained. The people of that section...are as heartily tired of the Mormons as ever the citizens of Missouri were...so strong a foothold that no power can exist which can deprive them of their positions or induce them to abandon their present residence."  Joseph Smith would be assassinated in Carthage the following year.
Page 7 has a nice report: "Cooperstown and Lake Otsego" extolling the beauty and virtues of the area.
