Acorn coffee for the poor... Recruitment ad for the U.S. military...



Item # 632725

July 3, 1799

THOMAS'S MASSACHUSETTS SPY OR WORCESTER GAZETTE, July 3, 1799  Page 2 has: "Prospect of an Indian War" mentioning: "...at Fort Washington, informing him that the Indians were embodying & holding councils--and from every appearance meditating a stroke on some part of the frontiers of the United States...".
The back page has an interesting item: "Acorn Coffee" prefaced with: "...may perhaps particularly serve the poor, who at the present high price of Coffee find it difficult to gratify themselves with it." The back page also has a very nice recruitment ad for the military headed: "ATTENTION ! " "To all who properly estimate the Independence of America, love its Constitution, and are willing to defend its Government & Laws, in the station of Soldiers, an opportunity now presents." following which are the enticements for joining the military (see).
Four pages, nice condition.
