May 09, 1850

THE DAILY UNION, Washington, D.C., May 9, 1850  

* California gold rush

The back page has a report headed; "One Month Later From California" which reports on gold: "...a large amount of metal, purporting to be and bearing the semblance of gold dust, was received...of a constant supply of this spurious metal to this port. Whether it is to be used in coinage, disseminated through 'quicksilver gold', or mixed with other dust can only be conjectured".
Four pages, minor tears at margins, good condition.
