    Handbill Promoting Emigration to Texas. One page, 5" x 6.25", March 15, 1878. The broadside is headed, "Ho! For Texas! The Lone Star State! Where Lands are Cheaper than in any other State in the Union, and where can be and is raised a Greater Variety of Crops than in any other two." The broadside, which bears the name of "D. H. Talbot, Sioux City, Iowa", offers land from "25 cents to . . . $10.00 per acre" and boasts that Texas, "unlike the old Southern States, is progressive, and is rapidly taking her place among the more advanced States of the Union." On the verso, Talbot offers to buy land from soldiers and sailors: "Good News for all Soldiers and Sailors!" Toned paper; light tape residue and very small amount of paper loss along top edge. Fine. Ex Ben E. Pingenot.
