Catholic Newspaper from New York
Truth Teller (New York) 1825-1828. 134 issues.
Before 1825 New York had two newspapers defending Irish Catholic issues.
The Truth Teller is the first separate
newspaper in New York dealing with Catholic issues in general. It began
Apr. 2, 1825, probably under the editorship of George Pardow and William
Denman although their names do not appear on the masthead for the first
seven months. The
first six issues were published under the name of W[illam] E[usebius]
Andrews and Co., publisher of the London Truth Teller. This
began in response to the growing number of Catholics immigrating to New
York and the vocal opposition of the Federalists to foreigners,
particularly the Irish.

"One day I am visited by a collector of ordination sermons; the next, by
a collector of 4th of July orations; then comes a collector of geography;
another wants religious newspapers; another wants every book printed in
New York before 1700. I accommodate myself to all; for I want every thing
and collect every thing, and I have more zeal than the whole of them: and
in this way I am kept very busy."
