July 7, 1847. Notice from the Mayor's office asking all citizens to cooperate with an order to ensure the city's �cleanliness.� List of retail and tavern licenses granted; another list of unclaimed letters. Railroad ads, lots of ads for newly published books, news of Yellow Fever in Mexico, news from Texas and from Taylor's army (remember this was the year before the Mexican-American War). A wonderful ad: Five hundred dollar reward to the person who can prove that Jules Hauels Vegetable liquid Hair Dye is not �the best the very best known in this country or in Europe.� To be sold at private sale, the girl Juliet, a fine seamstress and ladies' maid with her two children, a boy 6 and a girl 5...will be sold only to a city residence.� This is a four page paper with some separation at center fold, but in otherwise very good condition.
