    [Civil War] The Daily True Delta Newspaper. Vol. 25, No. 135, four pages, 15" x 22", New Orleans, April 27, 1862. This is the edition put out the day New Orleans was ordered to surrender to Union forces. The front page begins with a message "To Our Readers" which reads in part:

    "In the altered situation of affairs here it will not be expected that we shall be able to furnish the news from the interior of these States as we have heretofore done, and especially in relation to military affairs." It continues: "We cannot...bring ourselves to believe that the present bloody and ruinous war will be much longer protracted." And later: "The North has now forced the Mississippi river and is in possession of the chief city of the Confederacy."

    Page two contains an account of the shelling of Fort Jackson located seventy miles south of New Orleans. One vertical and one horizontal fold crease is evident with some staining at the top along the vertical crease. Some chipping and tearing along the back edge, but fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
