The travails of those heading west...
Item # 688252
August 16, 1852
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Aug. 16, 1852 The bottom of page 3 has two brief items: "From Utah" noting that "...Emigrants were arriving daily on their way to California..." and also: "Capture of Fugitive Slaves" regarding 14 slaves belonging to Mrs. Pendleton had been captured.
Page 3 also has a quite lengthy and detailed letter: "From the Far West" written from "...Fort Kearney on the Oregon route...". The letter is a warning to those heading west about the Indians they may encounter on route. Some fine reading. Page 3 also has: "Another Indian Treaty".
The back page has a nice ad for "Uncle Tom's Cabin" which details how wildly popular it has become, and promoting its sale.
Four pages, minor binding indents at the spine, nice condition.
