1802 Newspaper Announcements

Newspaper Announcements in the July 7, 1802 edition of the Massachusetts Spy contains an ad for an 13 - 15 yr old apprentice to a hat maker in Uxbridge, an ad for a journeyman blacksmith in Worcester, and an announcement that the "co partnership of Bush and Cutting is this day dissolved".

 

I like how the hat maker, Jonathan Whipple included in his ad for a hat making apprentice that "any person having books in their possession belonging to said Whipple are requested to return them to him immediately." I guess people were borrowing Mr. Whipple's books without returning them.
