Springfield: Baker & Phillips, April 25, 1865 (Vol. XVII, No. 268). Large folio. (4pp). Black mourning borders. Very good. Minor soiling and minor wear along some original folds, but no binding traces and remarkably few edge tears. Lincoln's body had just left Philadelphia en route to Springfield via a special funeral train when this issue appeared. Some other headlines: "Mosby Surrenders Conditionally on Johnston's Terms," "Lee's Paroled Soldiers Tearing up the Railroads," "Fall of Montgomery Confirmed," "Condition of Secretary Seward and Son." An attractive copy.
