Petersburg Intelligencer-Extra Had a Delay in Printing

This small broadside, issued in Petersburg, explained to readers and subscribers why the daily Petersburg Intelligencer was not published that week. It is possible that the publisher, John W. Syme, had his announcement printed in the offices of a local competitor, the Southside Democrat. In emergencies, printers often assisted each other in that way. Available records do not indicate how speedily Syme was able to resume printing the Intelligencer.
