Years in print:
The St. Louis Daily Express was established in 1858, by Wm. Cuddy (also found spelled as Cody), a gentleman for many years practically connected with journalism. Its first issue was in a miniature form, which continued for some months, until its increasing patronage justified its increasing size. It is now a large and respectable sheet, and progressing in influence and circulation. It is published also weekly.
