Thomas Ragland, Proprietor. Volume IV—Number 167. 4 pp., 5 columns, 19 x 12”. Exhibits horizontal fold-mark. Both masthead and column print faded, while remining entirely legible. Else VG, and worthy of framing.

Consists primarily of advertisements and legal notices, such as the calendar for Talbot County Superior Court. Second and third pages contain excerpts from northern papers, with caustic commentary, along with local news. Below is an Enquirer paragraph on the character of Andrew Johnson, Lincoln’s military governor of Tennessee:

“Who is “Gov.” Johnson.—Andy Johnson, Lincoln’s Military Governor of Tennessee, is a native of North Carolina. His grand father was hung, during the first revolution, as a Tory marauder and spy in the pay of Tarleton. His cousin, Madison Johnson, was hung for horse-stealing, some twenty years ago, by a regular verdict of twelve of his peers…Andy having more sense than the rest of his family, left his native state at an early day, went to Tennessee and turned his attention to politics. He has. Therefore, been more fortunate in his villainy than his illustrious ancestors were. The day of retribution may yet overtake him however.”

Excellent Georgia CW newspaper collectible. In protective sleeve.  [sl]
