St. Louis: April 28, 1842. Broadside, 10 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches, printed in various sizes and styles of type, including three large display types, for the two headlines and the central “MARMION.” The judgment which resulted in the sale of the Marmion was brought by Robert P. Clark, H.F. Given & Co., John R. Hammond, Jonas Newman, Sarah Mason, and the city of St. Louis, against the steamboat. The Marmion, built in 1835, plied the Mississippi River between St. Louis and New Orleans under Captain John Staley and was involved in a collision with another steamboat in 1841. Some faint old staining; splits, chips and minor loss of a few letters (archivally repaired, deacidified, lined with Japanese paper). Item #60182
