An advertisement concerning the "President's Household"...



Item # 619254

May 25, 1789

THE DAILY ADVERTISER, New York, May 25, 1789 

* President George Washington
* Steward for his house advertisement


Being from the nation's capital at the time, and from the very beginning of the new federal government (Washington was inaugurated April 30) it is not surprising this newspaper would have an ad on page 3 headed: "The President's Household" reading: "Whereas all servants and others, employed to procure provisions or supplies for the Household of the PRESIDENT of the United States, will be furnished with monies for those purposes. Notice is therefore given that no accounts for the payment of which the public might be considered as responsible, are to be opened with any of them. Sam. Fraunces, Steward of the Household." (see).
Samuel Fraunces was the owner of the famed Fraunces Tavern in New York City, where George Washington said farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolutionary War (see hyperlink for more).
Four pages, very nice condition.
