912. Massachusetts Centinel, 26 July 1788

EXTRAORDINARIES—By a correspondent.

TO BE GIVEN AWAY,

Several important and high stations, in the new government. No persons need offer themselves as candidates for them, unless they can be well recommended, for tried abilities, strict honour and integrity, and unshaken federalism. Inquire of “THE PEOPLE.”

Index Finger Information having been given that some persons have offered some of these stations as being in their gift, the world are assured that such persons were in no wise empowered to make the offer.

WANTED,

A Reasonable Pretext for ratifying the Constitution. Apply to No. 46, Poughkeepsie.

LOST

By a flaming patriot in Virginia, all his Pretensions to Consistency—They were dropt at Richmond, wrapped up in an “Address of the Minority.”

WANTED TO PURCHASE,

Blank Recantations of antifederal sentiments.—Those of a good form will receive any price. Inquire of two would-be Candidates for seats in the Federal Government, in two adjacent counties.

WANTED

By the Federalists—the ratifications of North-Carolina and New-York.

By the antis—eye-sight.

By the R. I. majority—anarchy.

By the minority—a separation.

And by America in general—the speedy operation of the new government.=qmJuly 22.
