The Cruiser, Freeport, February 1859
Contributed by Freeport Historical Society
The Cruiser, Freeport, February 12, 1859, vol. 1 no. 3.
The hand-written newspaper was prepared by a church group for passing around the small shipbuilding community of South Freeport. Eight issues were prepared on a semi-monthly basis.
Issues include some shipping news, some illustrations, a few advertisements, stories, poems, essays, math problems and word puzzles. Some articles are written under pseudonyms. Issue No. 8 mentions that the group was suspending operation for the "season;" apparently they never resumed production.
