THE WEEKLY TELEGRAPH

TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 1860

Apple-Touch-IconAI was able to locate another issue of The Weekly Telegraph in Houston. The day was Tuesday, 20 April 1860. This is nine years prior to the previous issue of The Houston Telegraph that contained the abundant Edward Wilder, Dr. John Bull and others advertisements. I tell you, Houston was swimming in product. It still is.
