  • Illinois Staats-Zeitung -- May 08, 1866

    Chicago, Illinois,

    May 7, 1866.

    After having served faithfully, and, I believe successfully, on the editorial staff of the Illinois Staats-Zeitung, for five years, the undersigned hereby gives notice that he has severed his connection with that publication.

    Wilhelm Rapp

    Chicago, Illinois,

    May 8, 1866.

    In Mr. Wilhelm Rapp, whose affiliation with the Illinois Staats-Zeitung was terminated yesterday, as may be seen from the above statement, we have lost a very able associate, and we regret that he is leaving us. He has devoted five 2years of faithful and efficient service to this newspaper, giving his time and talents during a very trying period.

    Beginning today, Dr. Adolph Wiesner, for many years the Baltimore and New York correspondent of the Illinois Staats-Zeitung and formerly editor of the Turnzeitung, will take the place of Wilhelm Rapp in our editorial department.

    Illinois Staats-Zeitung Company.
