Descripción

Folio broadside, 16.5" x 22". Printed using several different typesettings. Light crease from having been folded. Very Good. This rare broadside survival was printed during the early commercial development of Quincy, a Mississippi River town which became a thriving rail and river transportation center and, by 1870, the second largest city in Illinois. The Graves brothers-- Henry Littleton [1832- c.1882] and Washington Clay [1834-?]-- were Kentuckians who became Illinois farmers before they were out of their teens. They became partners with James T. Sawyer [c.1818-?], a native Tennessean with a well-stocked mercantile business. Their establishment is noted in the directories of the era. Sawyer later served as a director of the Quincy, Missouri Pacific Railroad.
