General Description & Notes:
According to Wickersham, this monthly publication, of which Nos. 1 to 10 inclusive were published in Libbysville, Port Clarence, Russian America, and Nos. 11 and 12 in Camp Libby, Plover Bay, Eastern Siberia, appeared in both manuscript and later print.
The paper provided information of the workers building the Western Union telegraph line from the United States at Puget Sound, via the Fraser and Yukon rivers, to Port Clarence and then across the Bering Strait to Plover Bay and points in Asia and Europe.
The manuscript was taken to San Francisco on the failure of the project, given the success of the Trans-Atlantic cable, and printed there by the editor. Editor’s preface is dated Oct. 31, 1867.
