Literary Trumpet. vol. 1 no. 2. November 12, 1846. One issue.

Published as an "Extra" to the Literary Trumpet, this broadside is the only number of the publication that remains. It is a single sheet of paper, handwritten on both sides. The contents are mostly short, humorous essays and jokes. The longest piece is a satire entitled "Early Reminiscences of C. Hill" which relates that "After the organization of the institution the first care of the trustees was to procure a proper victualler for the boys: and the secondary care was as a matter of course, an appropriate faculty."
