Manufacturer: Commercial Advertiser / New York

Printed on rag paper, well tattered on the edges but complete with no major tears or repairs, this four page (21 X 13 ½ inches each) newspaper is headed COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER New York September 28, 1789. In addition to the latest City news and correspondence from away, a myriad of advertisements are placed by local merchants as they list their wares and the latest stock from new ship arrivals. Advertisements for cotton, molasses the latest food stuffs, textiles, gentlemen’s hats and ladies fancy goods, sugar, coffee and barrels of pilot bread are sprinkled in among an array of notices for tobacco, rums, brandies and Bordeauxs. Gun flints gunpowder and weaponry are offered with one foundry offering For Sale : cannon of any size from 4 to 8 pounds cast at Salisbury foundries will be delivered here or on the Hudson at short notice the superior quality of this metal and workmanship gives them a preference to any other guns made in the United States. The Captain of the Brig Apollo offers a $20. reward for a runaway indentured apprentice while a cobbler offers that $5. will be paid to any person who shall apprehend or cause to be lodged in any jail within the state, Richard Paul and apprentice has abandoned from service. Seems the seventeen year old Richard took off carrying with him his working tools and some leather. The arrival, departure and even sale of various ships is offered in the somewhat faded but mostly ledgeable 18th century print. The news offers such intelligence as; number of deaths in the city for 24 hours ending yesterday evening – 60 - 17 of the fever / number of burials in Philadelphia for 24 hours ending Wednesday at noon - adults 72 - children 5. The FEVER seems to be of major concern on land and at sea as the Captain of the Ship Argonaut writes: A greater portion of officers both in the Army and the Navy have died of yellow fever than privates or sailors which I ascribe to their eating too much putreseent food. The physician general told me last week that this fever had baffled the skill of all the faculty both English and French. Extracts from a ships letter out of Charleston is dated Havana and advises: We have been boarded by two British privateers near the Bahama Banks, they treated us very politely and after overhauling dismissed us. We were also boarded by a French privateer, or rather pirate, they rummaged, broke and plundered a number of things. (They) beat my mate and I expected nothing else but they would have murdered all hands. They hove a rope to the yardarm and fixed it around a Negroes neck to hang him but after I pleaded with them sometime they let go. What they could not well carry off they threw overboard but not the cargo. After exercising the cruelty of demons for 22 hours they left us
Too much to cover here but you get the idea. A neat companion item with other 18th century antiques and an interesting read. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
