SAN AUGUSTINE JOURNAL AND ADVERTISER. The San Augustine Journal and Advertiser, a four-page weekly newspaper published at San Augustine, was probably a successor of the first San Augustine Red-Lander. A. W. Canfield purchased the press W. W. Parker used to print the Red-Lander from 1838 until declining health caused him to discontinue it the next year. Canfield issued the Journal and Advertiser as Volume I from May 28, 1840, until May 20, 1841, when he resumed the name of its predecessor and began one week later with Volume II of the Red-Lander.
