The National Anti-Slavery Standard
Unsigned (Sidney Howard Gay)
New York: 19 August 1852

  'UNCLE TOM'S CABIN.'—An edition of this popular book is announced as about to be published at Toronto, Canada, at 2 s. 6 d. Four or five editions have already been issued in England, and the sale is very rapid. But a few copies, it is said, have as yet reached California, but in one place, the miners are reported as reading it by turns, paying twenty-five cents each for the privilege.
