Runaway boy ad...

Item # 583646

July 29, 1829

MIDDLESEX GAZETTE, Middletown, Connecticut, July 29, 1829 

* Runaway boy reward advertisement

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 photos), and the offer of a "1 mill" reward would seem to be an insult to his value.

Issue has four pages and is in nice condition.
