This is one of the most famous of the nineteenth-century amateur newspapers.  Published between 1862 and 1866 on a weekly basis, Nellie Williams put out this paper using her brother’s workshop (he had gone off to war and was subsequently killed in battle).  At one time she boasted of a thousand subscribers.  This is the earliest issue in our collection.
