About this collection

The Commerce Dispatch banner

 

 

The Commerce Dispatch (est. 1867) was the “pioneer paper of Scott county,” and its editors believed that a local county paper would provide more value than any city journal. Despite focusing on Scott county issues, events, and “local chat,” the Dispatch chose to adopt “something of [a] city air in typography.” Like most papers of the day, the Dispatch also included literary content and appointed Mrs. Julia Eversol and Mrs. Adda Lynch as “editresses” of this genre, and they, in turn, promised to “make the outside of the Dispatch pleasant and entertaining to the public generally and our lady readers may always expect something for their especial benefit.”
