Years in print:
The history of the [Daily Commercial] Bulletin in its early years is obscure. We do know that during this time Charles G. Ramsey became connected with the establishment. In 1840 Oliver Harris joined the paper as a member of the firm Churchill, Harris and Cady. Harris had formerly been associated with Chambers and Knapp in the publication of the Republican.
