About this Item

Large Fo. 4 pp. The Hartford Weekly Times was a prominent newspaper in Connecticut from 1847?97, an outgrowth of the Hartford Times, 1837?46. A pirated Dickens tale, published in a Hartford newspaper and identified (incorrectly) as from All the Year Round, Dickens?s magazine at that time. In fact the original title is ?Horatio Sparkins? and it is from ?Tales? from Sketches by Boz and was originally published in February, 1834. The article has also been edited, with shortening, especially of the beginning. It does lose, by this editing, some of the humor of one of the best sketches in Dickens?s early work. The style, however, is inimitable. This issue of the newspaper includes reports of battle in the Civil War and many articles on the issues of the conflict, as well as reprints of Washington?s ?Farewell Address? and excerpts from Andrew Jackson?s ?Farewell Address? Most notably, however, there is a reprint of Jefferson Davis?s first address to the Congress of the Confederate States of America after his inauguration. In this, Davis expresses optimism about the expected success of the South, regrets for Southern casualties, the need to develop technologies in the South to develop newer instruments of warfare on sea and land, and a need for the CSA Congress to move on with formation of a Supreme Court in line with their new Constitution. A very rich issue, indeed. Folded. Tiny pinhole though confluence of the major folds with no loss. Slight browning at edges. Mild soiling. Slight fraying at leading edge. Else, Very Good.
