Stock Sale! I will Offer for Sale at Public Auction? Saturday June 23d, '88? 50 Cows with Calves!
M.H. Gardner, Folio (16 3/4x12 3/4), broadside printed on cloth. Some soiling and staining, creases where it was once folded, some fraying at extremities, one side is cut a little uneven at the margin, but has no affect on text, Kansas is written in pencil under the last line; overall about very good. Rare broadside poster of an auction printed on cloth. The sale seems to be held by F. N. Moore, and besides the cows and calves offered, were two shorthorn bulls, two work horses, and three brood mares.There were also some pigs and mowing machines included in the auction. Seven months credit was offered, and a 6 per cent discount for cash. J.P. Hartley was the auctioneer. There is considerable text included in this broadside. This event was held about the time the U.S. cattle industry hit its peak in the 19th century.
