Newspaper from Middlesex, Connecticut... Runaway boy ad...



Item # 587055

August 5, 1829

MIDDLESEX GAZETTE, Middletown, Connecticut, Aug. 5, 1829

* Rare title
* Runaway boy ad


Among the several illustrated ads is an interesting one offering a "1 Mill Reward" for a runaway "...boy named Henry Beebee..." with a description of him. The engraving shows a well-dressed guy on a stroll; one of the more interesting "runaway" prints I have seen (see photo), and the offer of a "1 mill" reward would seem to be an insult to his value. Four pages, nice condition.
