8 pgs., This issue is highlighted by several short articles from the various departments regarding the prosecution of the war. There are stories from Washington (including two on British blockade runners), from Rosecrans' army and an interesting one from Grant's army, at that time frustrated during the Vicksburg campaign. The center section is the Evening Edition of the Tribune, featuring a copy of a letter from Virginia Governor John Letcher to President Lincoln giving the reasons for his retaliation at the imprisonment of the "French Lady", Colonel Richard Thomas Zarona. There is a great deal of foreign news presented in this issue, along with a large amount of local advertising. A very small item in this section announces the formation of "The Massachusetts Colored Regiment" to be designated the 54th Massachusetts and led by Colonel Robert G. Shaw . Many other fascinating features.

In very good condition, with foxing and toning throughout (sometimes heavy). A few small holes and some minor edge tears are mentioned for accuracy.
