Early description of San Diego...



Item # 692184

September 07, 1850

THE GREENSBOROUGH PATRIOT, (Greensboro), North Carolina, Sept. 7, 1850  Rarely are we able to secure antebellum newspapers from this city.
Articles include: "Things That Cost Nothing" "The Tomato" which gives its history, and notes: "...Its introduction on our tables is as a culinary vegetable is of recent date..."; "Gold In Texas" 'The Growth of Our Country" "San Diego" which is early on this city, noting in part: "...harbor is acknowledged to be second only to that of Sean Francisco...the most delightful portion of California...and its climate, the purest & most equable in the world will induce many citizens of the upper country to spend the winter in this Italian clime...".
Four pages, very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 343 (released for June, 2024)
