George S. Zemaitis has given a copy of the Daily Notes to the society. The date on it is April 18, 1894, and it identifies itself as the first issue of the daily edition of the newspaper. However, it is undersized. Instead of being 16 by 20 inches, with seven columns, the sheet is letter size (8½ by 11 inches) with three columns.
The paper is the typical acidic wood pulp paper of the period, so it probably is not a later reproduction. Perhaps it was handed out as a sample, to encourage people to subscribe.
