Ads in Albany, November 4, 1833

You could see Mr. Parsons and Mrs. Greene in Macbeth at the Albany Theatre, and "striking likenesses of these celebrated Indian warriors, Black Hawk, Prophet and Son" at the Albany Museum. Last month somebody made off with a "HAIR COVERED TRUNK" full of Gansevoort Melville's fur caps. The young (almost eighteen) furrier is offering a "$20 REWARD" for return of the contents. His brother Herman, already 14 years old, still works at the bank.

  1. I wonder if young Herman saw the "White Dromedary" in the Albany Museum. Perhaps it had a hump like a snow hill in the air.
