A complete and authentic issue of the Illustrated London News, March 9, 1861, 24pp., disbound, VG. From the interior an article, “Release of Anderson, the Fugitive Slave” runs 2/3 column. John Anderson was an fugitive slave who escaped to Canada, evading the pursuit of bounty hunters. While on the run he killed a farmer from Howard County, Missouri. Anderson stabbed the farmer, Seneca Digges, who died shortly after. Digges intended to legally recapture Anderson, and ultimately send him back into his master’s custody. Anderson lived and worked in Canada West from 1854 to April 1860, managing to keep a low profile. He was eventually arrested and held by Magistrate William Matthews in Brantford, Ontario. There is a second article with an engraving of Anderson in the supplement.
