I need some help locating Pittsburgh newspapers on microfilm for the years 1877-1883.

We're researching the publication of Food for Thinking Christians. The reaction to the booklet was largely negative; Russell says this. We've only located three newspaper articles from the era. We would like more. If you have any information, I would appreciate hearing from you.

I'm also researching Jesse Harper of Danville, Illinois. His book (The Millennium Age; The Restoration, The Race Restored, The Earth Restored, The Earth a Home (Entos) for All) suggests that he was familiar with Russell and with the Ransom/Atonement debates. If you have any information about him, I would appreciate it if you shared it.

We continue to need the anti-Food for Thinking Christians booklet I mentioned in an earlier post. Also, there was a distrubance with the circulation of Food in Newark in August 1881. I cannot locate any information. Anyone in New Jersey who can help?
