General Description and Notes:

Kennedy writes (p. 547):

“A boy named James A. Booth published a manuscript paper in Downieville in 1858.  It was called the Schoolboys’ Echo, and was good enough to draw strong praise from Calvin B. McDonald, at that time editor of the Trinity Journal.  McDonald only mentioned two issues of the Echo, although there may have been more.”
