4 pgs., The Boston Daily Journal was a popular daily newspaper in the antebellum period, during the Civil War, and immediately after. It featured a great deal of contemporary advertisements throughout and, in this war dated issue, several reports from the frontlines.

Several interesting reports appear in this mid-war issue, including opinions on the ultimate objective of General Robert E. Lee's invasion of Pennsylvania, a call to arms to defend Union territory, and speculation on Union General Joseph Hooker's plans to repel the Confederate forces. International news includes reports from the French military expedition to Mexico, which the United States opposed, and the Confederate States supported and the comings and goings of foreign vessels in Boston and Havana. Domestic, non-war related news includes the results of a baseball game between Brown University's club and the Providence Club and the upcoming match between Brown and Harvard.

This issue is in very good condition with light toning throughout. Some edge chipping appears, however this is consistent with removal from binding.
