A page 2 report says: The elegant seat of Jared Scarborough, Esq., near the city of Hartford, has been purchased for the use of the Deaf and Dumb Society, by the Directors of that Institution at the price of $8600. A bit more. This was the first school for the deaf in the United States, founded by Thomas Gallaudet and a few others. Other news of the day includes: "Plates For Counterfeiting Bills" "The Sea Serpent' and more. Several ads as well. Trimmed a bit close at the top, some foxing.
