The Lowell Courier. [sixty-five issue from 1841; Lowell, Massachusetts tri-weekly newspaper]


Substantial collection of The Lowell Courier, edited by Daniel S. Richardson (1816-1890) and printed and published by Daniel H. Knowlton and Leonard Huntress (1811–1885) who established the newspaper in 1835.

The Papers of Abraham Lincoln Digital Library inform: “The Lowell Daily Journal and Courier had its origins in the failure of the original Lowell Journal in 1834. Partners Leonard Huntress and Daniel H. Knowlton purchased the defunct paper, and united it with the Lowell Courier, which was first published on January 6, 1835. Started as a rival newspaper to the Democratic Journal, the Lowell Courier was Whig in orientation and politics. It appeared tri-weekly only until July 1, 1845, when William Schouler, who purchased the Courier and Journal in 1842, began to print the paper daily. Throughout the late 1840s to the mid-1850s, Samuel J. Varney published daily and weekly issues of the Journal and Courier. In 1855, Varney stopped publishing the daily. The Journal and Courier continued until 1861, when the Lowell Daily Courier superseded it.”

All issues are from Volume 7 in 1841—ranging from No. 1013 (May 6, 1841) to No. 1166 (December 11, 1841). They are:  May 6, 8, 15, 20, 22, 25, 27. 29; June 1, 3, 5, 8;  August 7, 10, 12, 14, 17, 19, 21, 24, 26, 28, 31;  September 2, 4, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30;  October 2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 21, 23, 26, 29, 30;  November 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 23, 27, 30; and December 2, 4, 7, 9, 11.
