The BOSTON JOURNAL is also available as part of Series 5 of the Readex
project EARLY AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS, but unfortunately the holdings
there start with January 1, 1866, so too late for your citation:



Early American Newspapers, Series 5, 1777-1922: An Emerging World Power

Late 19th- and Early 20th-Century Newspapers


for what it's worth...
