Colorado Citizen, August 28, 1858, October 2, 1858. The earliest known extant edition of the Colorado Citizen is volume 1, number 4, dated August 15, 1857. Prior to the establishment of the Citizen, the people of Colorado County evidently regarded a newspaper published in La Grange, the Texas Monument, as their local paper (see Texas Monument, July 27, 1853; Charles William Tait to James Asbury Tait, October 2, 1850, Tait Family Papers (Ms. 32), Archives of the Nesbitt Memorial Library, Columbus).
