The short story includes a picture of Farrar. Another small article describes warnings that appeared in New York papers that Ocean Liners were at risk of being torpedoed by German U-boats. One such liner was the Lusitania. The article goes on to describe that several passengers including Alfred G. Vanderbilt, had received telegrams warning them not to sail. Finally, t is a front page story covering the women's suffrage movement. This story is continued on page two. Additional stories related to women's suffrage appear on pags 4 and 6. The newspaper is in good condition but still must be handled using care due to its delicate nature. The newspaper is complete except for the sports page which has been removed.

I Do Combine Shipping On Multiple Purchase s

Attention International Customers!

You Now Have 2 Shipping Choices

Due to United States Postal Service changes in Intenational Mailing Standards in May of 2007, full newspapers and newspaper pages that are shipped FLAT can only be shipped using PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL. Please visit the website to calculate postage to your country. Generally single newspaper pages can be shipped under one pound and multiple pages or full newspapers can be shipped for under two pounds. In either case an invoice will be sent with actual shipping costs immediately after auction end or a "Buy It Now" purchase. Shipping costs for single or multiple smaller ads or comics can be reduced by having me remove them from the newspaper page or pages. I can also include the date header from the page or pages. Please e-mail with any shipping cost questions prior to purchase.

Another and less costly option would be to ship these newspapers and/or newspaper pages in a large 3" mailing tube. T could be a slight risk of damage due to the delicate nature of these newspaper pages. However, using the larger diameter 3" tube would minimize any damage due to not having to tightly roll the pages. This option would reduce your shipping costs by as much a 50%.
