Single page letter sheet on blue paper. Broadside, printed in double columns within ornamental border. 25x20 cm (10x8").

Baird, California Pictorial Letter Sheets (p. 24, note 8) lists this as a non-pictorial letter sheet. This is the issue with the last line of text in the first column ending with "isnt," rather than "snt," and with copyright notice ending with California. Thirty-five articles, practical to humorous, on the life of the miner.
